ORGANIZATION: The Samaritan Center

  • 10 people are interested

The Pantry Volunteer is to assist our homeless drop-in center/food pantry with in-kind donations management.

Requirements:
  • Weekly Commitment of at least 4 or more months because of training
  • Be dependable and punctual.
  • Wear comfortable and appropriate clothing and shoes. Shoes must be close-toed.
  • Ability to lift 20lbs and to stand or squat for long periods of time is preferred.
  • Be self-directed, willing to take initiative, patient and have problem solving abilities.

Position Description:
The Pantry Volunteer comes in to help with our pantry preparation and distribution. This may involve sorting produce into bags, sorting through items we get delivered from grocery stores and other donations, prepping/breaking down boxes, distributing groceries, signing in clients, and cleaning up. Please note that our pantry program is mainly outside!

Pantry volunteers may also be asked to come in on an as needed basis dependent on the volume of food donations received. The Samaritan Center relies on pantry volunteers to maintain an organized and up-to-date pantry. This requires ensuring fresh foods are not going bad and shelf-stable items are unopened. Items are then placed in the appropriate location, and regularly rotated goods based on date of expiration.

Currently, we are looking for a volunteer to help out on:
-Tuesdays from 09:30am-01:30pm but other days possible for on-call coverage

Support:
Masks and gloves will be provided. Training will be provided. Samaritan Center staff members are onsite for questions and concerns.
