The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Groups and individuals are invited to volunteer in Quality Control (QC) at Tarrant Area Food Bank's warehouse, where donated food products are sorted, inspected and repacked for distribution to a network of partner organizations in a 13-county area.
Individuals as young as 12 years old and may volunteer in QC. Children ages 12-13 require one adult chaperone for every 1 to 3 children volunteering. Kids ages 14-15 years old require one adult chaperone for every 1 to 10 youth. Because Tarrant Area Food Bank is concerned about the safety of all volunteers, there are no exceptions to this policy.
Volunteers in Quality Control make a BIG impact by helping to ensure that our neighbors in need receive safe, quality food.
