Food distribution is a hands-on volunteer activity. Activities could include assisting with set up, unloading and moving food boxes from pallets; loading boxes into clients' cars; and site clean-up. This volunteer activity does require some heavy lifting (15-30 lbs.) and regular movement. Volunteers must be willing and able to work with people of different backgrounds and nationalities, exhibit compassion and sensitivity, maintain strict confidentiality of all member and volunteer information, as well as to follow all guidelines and instructions provided by the site leader, including safety guidelines.Please note: If you choose to volunteer at this location, the partner will likely have their own volunteer agreement and your volunteer relationship will be with this organization, not Second Harvest.
