A volunteer is needed to drive to local grocery store to pick up food shelf donations, load up donations from each retail department, and drive it back to the Interfaith Outreach Food Shelf. At Interfaith Outreach the food needs to be unloaded from your vehicle or truck, weighed, and put in the correct locations (e.g. freezer, cooler, or sorting tables).
This job requires heavy lifting. Donations are stored in produce boxes weighing about 30 pounds each.
Volunteers can use their personal vehicles or a cargo van or truck owned by Interfaith Outreach. Driving Interfaith Outreach vehicles requires a Motor Vehicle Report showing you're a safe driver prior to volunteering.
Here's a little more about the organization you would be working with:
