What is a Protein Engineer you ask? A Protein Engineer keeps our Freezers well stocked with frozen proteins. Our clients get to select their own proteins to take home and cook for their family. YUM! And you will make that happen!

The Details:

Days: Wednesday mornings

Times: 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

How many: 1-2 volunteers

Job Duties: Fill the freezers with proteins, keep the freezers stocked, help to stock and arrange the walk-in freezer (brrrr!!) - it’s like playing Tetris... with boxes... in a freezer, and assist clients with protein selections.

Supervised by: Caleb Mingus, our spectacular Program Coordinator Extraordinaire

Training: Ya sure, you betcha there will be training.

What do you need to bring? Smiles, strong muscles, willing and able to lift up to 50 pounds, willing to get dirty sometimes, willing to celebrate the glory that is food donations, willing to get a little cold once in a while!! Yay food!! Oh yeah, and wear closed-toe, comfy shoes. It’s for health and safety reasons and it’s a concrete floor. Always bring a coat and gloves to protect you while you work in the freezers.

What’s in it for you? The knowledge that you will help feed people who come to shop at the Food Shelf on Monday and Friday mornings. HUGE!!!! You will make it happen! Acknowledgement from staff, volunteers and clients that you are a fabulous part of our team at Valley Outreach. Maybe make new friends and have fun while you work!

I’m in. Now what? Contact me, Suzanne Lindquist, Volunteer Manager at or at 651-342-5559and share that good news with me!

Thank you!
