Marin Community Clinics Health Hubs

Building Connections through healthy food choices

Marin Community Clinics is seeking volunteers at our Health Hub food pantries. Most of our patients are low income families with socioeconomic and social stress. It is our priority to provide a safe, friendly, and culturally sensitive environment.

Health Hubs is an outdoor, community based, multicultural, and multilingual program that connects and engages more than 1000 people every week. Health Hubs provides access to healthy food and community resources that support the health and well-being of the community, regardless of race, age, income or place of residence.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis Health Hubs is following the CDC guidelines. Our goal is to strike a balance between keeping the community safe while also performing an essential service and getting food to those in need though our drive thru and walk up food pantry distribution. We reevaluate safety protocols daily. We maintain safe practices, reducing the risk of virus transmission by cleaning, practicing social distancing, and wearing facemasks.

The Health Hub Volunteer shift starts:

  • Wednesday at Marin Community Clinic (3110 Kerner Blvd, San Rafael): 11:30am - 3:30pm
  • Thursdays at Marin Community Clinic (6100 Redwood Blvd, Novato): 11:30am - 3:30pm
  • Please note: Health Hub takes place outdoors, most often on the sidewalk or in a parking lot.

Volunteer service will include, but is not limited to, unloading and sorting food supplies, packaging and organizing food bags, distributing and recording food to the community, monitoring pedestrian and vehicle traffic, as well as site set up and clean up.

What to bring:

To further protect the health of volunteers and participants we are asking volunteers to bring:

  • Mask/facial covering (one-way valve masks are not acceptable)
  • Wear closed toe shoes
  • We will be outside, wear comfortable clothing (we recommend layers, a hat, and sunscreen due to the ever-changing weather conditions)
  • Be aware there will not be a place to store personal belongings, please do not bring valuables
  • Please bring a secure lidded water bottle and a snack
  • Volunteers must wear gloves at all times (provided by the Health Hub program at MCC)
  • We ask that any volunteer who does not feel well refrain from attending their volunteer shift
  • Volunteers should be able to lift 30 to 40 pounds

Length Health Hubs of food distribution is dependent on attendance - We currently provide food assistance to more than 1,000 people every week, but we do not know how many participants will arrive weekly or if they will all arrive early/late.

We thank you for your flexibility as we meet this emergent need.

We need your support for this essential program!
