Food Bank - Produce Receiving
Produce receiving requires sorting through boxes of mixed product that has come in from various grocery stores. Items are inspected for quality and sorted by type into crates for later distribution. This volunteer will need to be able to lift up to 40 lbs. and be able to be on their feet and walking for 2 ½-3 ½ hours (depending on the day you serve). Because the food bank temperature can vary due to open doors, we recommend that the volunteer dress in layers and wear comfortable shoes.
We would like all our volunteers to: * Work as part of a team and maintain a positive attitude and a spirit to serve others. * Have customer service skills to work with donors and clients. * Attention to detail to ensure the safety of self and others. * Willingness to work with other team members to achieve desired outputs.

About MARYSVILLE COMMUNITY FOOD BANK

Enhancing the lives of our neighbors by nourishing their bodies, hearts and souls to build a brighter future
The Marysville Community Food Bank had its beginnings in the rectory of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in 1974 when a handful of volunteers got together to distribute food out the back door to the hungry and homeless. Food was stored in a former laundry area, then a bedroom. Between 30 and 40 families a week were served.
Over the years, the Food Bank operations have grown. In 1987, it was formally organized as a non-profit organization supported by 12 churches in the community, with oversight provided by a Board of Directors. Today, the food bank is a "partnership" supported by 18 community churches, service clubs, schools, businesses, volunteers, and individuals. After a few location changes over the years, the Food Bank is now located on property owned by the Archdiocese of Seattle, which generously leases the property for $1 a year.
