Grocery Pick-Up

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: The Samaritan Center

  • 7 people are interested

The purpose of the Grocery Pickup Volunteer is to assist grocery stores in their kind giving to our pantry and clients.

Requirements:

  • Must be dependable and punctual.
  • Be courteous and personable when working with grocery store attendants.
  • Be self-directed, willing to take initiative, patient and have problem solving abilities.
  • Able to drive to transport food and lift up to 20 lbs.
  • Have a valid driver’s license and insurance.

Position Description:

This volunteer drives the Samaritan Center SUV or own truck, and picks up boxes of produce and other fresh items from 3-4 scheduled grocery/convenience stores. The volunteer will take the temperature of the items received and fill out the Meal Connect Store Poundage/Temperature Log, and then deliver the items to the Samaritan Center. This may take multiple trips back to the Samaritan Center because of the amount received and to maintain the temperature of refrigerated items.

Depending on the grocery store, there are different procedures and requirements the volunteer must abide by in order for the Samaritan Center to maintain its relationship with the grocer.

Currently we are looking for a grocery pick-up volunteer to help us out from 8:30am-11:30am, flexible days. The shift may take longer or end earlier depending on the amount of stops scheduled that day. All stops are within Simi Valley. To begin, we would have you do a ride-a-long with a current driver to learn all aspects of the job. We're currently looking for 1 day/week on Wednesdays starting in July.
