Food Program
Long time volunteers working in the COTS kitchen

COTS' food program delivers meals weekly to individuals and families who need groceries. Our food is collected and dropped off by local stores. We need individuals to unload this food and prepare our food boxes to be delivered each week.

Volunteers will work in a group setting to organize and prepare these boxes. Volunteers gain greater volunteer experience and provide support to people in need.


9:00am-1:00pm, Sunday through Thursday:

  • Start to assemble food boxes using the 'How to Build a Box’ sheet that has pictures including Fresh Produce, can goods, misc. dry goods, pastries, bread, Dairy, eggs, and frozen food.
  • Load and wheel boxes to the drive thru area. Each food box weighs 35-40 lb.
  • Drive thru opens at 9 AM. Boxes are taken outside and loaded into cars that make our deliveries

1 Shift

  • 09:00 AM to 01:00 PM PST - Spots available: 8
