Overview of Role: The Winnebago Community Market was opened to provide nutritious food to our community, according to our research on priority counties in Northern Illinois. Our volunteers for these Markets allow us to continue to grow these programs, feeding even more of our northern Illinois neighbors. Each Market needs approximately 10-15 volunteers in order to serve these populations most effectively.

Responsibilities: Available volunteer roles are chosen the day of the shift, and include assisting in registration, handing out food, restocking the food carts, and managing the carts as clients move to and from their cars.

Requirements: Interested volunteers should be comfortable interacting with others and must wear closed-toe shoes in order to participate.

Age: Volunteers should be at least 13 years old. Any volunteers under 16 should be accompanied by an adult.

Time Commitment: Volunteer shifts last 2 to 2.5 hours

Weekly Shifts:

  • Thursday 12:30 to 2:30, 2:30-5 and 5-7
  • Friday 12:30-2:30, 2:30-5 and 5-7
Training Required: Volunteers will receive a brief overview of Market operations as well as instructions on how to carry out their chosen role.

Supervised By: Processing Department
