Tasks (Listed in order of importance)
Greet customers, let them know what we have available, and answer any questions. Create a warm and welcoming environment for all customers.
Assist coordinator with stocking, restocking, and maintaining merchandising display.
If you see anything running low, please refill the basket from the extra stock inside truck. The displays should look overabundant with freshness. Please regularly spray the produce with water. In the summer this should happen every 15 minutes.
Collect emails of customers waiting in line.
Assist with weighing and bagging items. This is a great time to either assist with surveys or to chat with the customer about the program.
Administer qualitative and quantitative surveys with waiting customers. The coordinator on site will train you on the survey protocol.
At the end of the route day, assist coordinator with clean up. Help separate all produce that is spoiled or not in good enough shape to sell.
