Are you looking to give back and get outdoors this summer? Volunteer with Alchemist CDC's CalFresh at Farmers Markets program!

Your volunteer time directly creates equitable access to fresh, healthy, local food for every Sacramento resident!

CalFresh at Farmers' Markets facilitates the use of CalFresh/EBT and Pandemic EBT/P-EBT cards at Sacramento County farmers' markets. As a volunteer, you will help debit benefits from a customer's card and help receive redeemed vouchers from farmers.

Our program operates on Saturdays at Arden's Country Club Plaza Farmers' Market from 8am-12:30pm, as well as the following markets this summer:

Sunday
Arden Fair Mall, 8am-12:30pm

Thursday
Florin Road, 8am-12:30pm

Saturday
Midtown, 8am-1:30pm
Sunrise Station (Rancho Cordova), 8am-12:30pm
Laguna (Elk Grove), 8am-12:30pm
Natomas, 8am-12:30pm

Volunteer shifts vary in length from 2.5 to 4.5 hours, and can be customized to fit your schedule. All shifts are hands-on, in-person at the farmers' markets.

Our CalFresh community is diverse, and we welcome volunteers that can speak a second language (including Arabic, Cantonese, Farsi, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese).

Our COVID-19 precautions: all volunteers, staff, customers, and vendors are required to wear a well-fitted face mask that covers nose and mouth while at the CalFresh booth. Volunteer shifts are scheduled to limit the number of households spending time together at the market. Six feet of space is given whenever possible between staff, volunteers, customers, and vendors. Hand sanitizer is provided at the booth.

Our next volunteer training is Sunday, May 23, 2021 at Arden Fair Mall. RSVP through this Volunteer Match post or email Charlie, Program Coordinator, directly at charlie@alchemistcdc.org. If you can't make it on May 23, no problem! We will schedule a training that works with your schedule.
