My Neighborhood Mobile Grocery (MNMG) is a nutritionally focused, mobile grocery retail model that provides individuals with low access to affordable, healthy foods with a new and innovative shopping option within their communities. Offering a wide, competitively priced product mix that balances client choice with nutritional products, educational programming, and free food give-a-ways to incentivize increased consumption of fruits and vegetables, MNMG extends the purchasing power of shoppers.

Piquette Square is an apartment complex that houses previously homeless veterans. We are in need of volunteers to fulfill the following functions:

Greeters (2 needed) - Greet shoppers as they arrive. Distribute shopping lists and explain the ordering process. Manage the queueing line of shoppers as they review products on the display table and wait to place their order. Indoor setting.

Order Takers (2 needed) - Using a computer, volunteers will enter the grocery order and take payment. Volunteers should be extremely comfortable reading smaller print, using a computer and making changes. Indoor setting.

Order Fillers (3-4 needed) - Work on pulling the customers’ orders from the Gleaners Mobile Grocery truck. Orders will be double checked as they are bagged or boxed for the customers. Outdoor setting in a truck.
