Grocery Rescue Ride Along

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Renewal Food Bank

  • 12 people are interested

Summary:

Our shelves, refrigerators, and freezers are stocked by generous donations from our grocery partners, community members, and individual donors. Our grocery partner pickups alone require more than 15 stops per week, all thanks to the tireless work of our Transportation and Opps Manager, Steve.

The Grocery Rescue Ride Along program allows you to support our staff in securing critical food resources while learning about our supply chain logistics. As a team, you and Steve will travel to the stores assigned to that day to collect and load groceries, then return to the food bank to unload and sort, ensuring that we are abundantly stocked with needed items that families will take home that very same day. This is an exciting opportunity to act positively as an ambassador for Renewal Food Bank and to maintain and build relationships with our grocery store partners.

Volunteer Responsibility:

  • Have fun and enjoy getting to know Steve, our donors and our food rescue program.
  • Work with Steve to safely and efficiently pick up a wide variety of donated products from grocery stores, restaurants, farmers, caterers, etc.
  • Provide excellent customer service and communication to donors.
  • Represent Renewal Food Bank in a professional, positive, and efficient manner to increase our distribution abilities and enhance donor relationships.
