About

Farm Stand Volunteer

Background: The Food Shuttle Farm is a ten-acre urban production farm in the heart of Raleigh dedicated to growing the freshest produce possible for the Food Shuttle’s hunger relief programs.

All proceeds from sales support the organization’s programing.

Opening Shift: Volunteers in charge of opening the farm stand will be responsible for unlocking the entrance gate, creating produce displays, and placing roadside signs along Tryon road. Volunteers may also help with farm tasks that can be completed in the farm stand area during this time.

Selling Shift: During this shift, volunteers will maintain product displays by replenishing product as it is sold and interact with customers. Volunteers may also help with farm tasks that can be completed in the farm stand area during this time.

Closing Shift: The closing process involves breaking down produce displays, storing produce, storing display materials, collecting road side signs and locking the gate. Volunteers may also help with farm tasks that can be completed in the farm stand area during this time.
