Volunteer Drivers Needed!
Emergency Food Network
Position Description: Emergency Food Network distributes 14 million pounds of food each year to 80+ food pantries in Pierce County. In order to ensure distribution of food to the most vulnerable in our community, EFN is launching a new program to support home delivery. EFN Volunteer Drivers are needed to deliver meal boxes from EFN's Distribution Center in Lakewood to homes all over Pierce County. This is an exciting new avenue to serve our community during this increasingly difficult time, so please consider whether this is something you can help with over the next few weeks or months. Our goal is to have a network of volunteers "on call" for certain days of the week and times so that we can ensure delivery to all who request it as quickly as possible.
- Ability to lift 35 pounds repeatedly
- Available to be on call or scheduled to volunteer at least one shift per week
- Review these Guidelines for Volunteers during COVID-19 outbreak in Washington
- Complete EFN Volunteer Application & WSP background check
- Tuesdays, 9:00 am - 11:00 pm
- Fridays, 9:00 am - 11:00 pm
Promoting your safety as a volunteer: Please understand that EFN is exempt from a stay home order, as we must continue our essential work to feed the most vulnerable in Pierce County. EFN volunteers are both allowed and necessary to fulfill our mission. To minimize risk to volunteer and staff safety, we will be maintaining six feet between volunteers and staff as much as possible, sanitizing shared tools/surfaces, and providing gloves and masks to volunteers. Do not volunteer if you feel ill in any capacity.
