Serve the hungry from a mobile pantry by providing the many people who are unable to reach a community foodbank with this invaluable service. This pantry takes place outside in any weather. Volunteers should be able to stand, lift boxes and move about during the distribution. Be a part of this unforgettable experience!
Volunteers are needed to assist with the following tasks:
Set up and take down of the operation.
Help the food bank driver and two Mobile Pantry Managers by unloading tables from the food bank truck.
Set up the tables and pallets of food onto the tables. This includes cases of canned food from the Federal government, fresh produce, bread, juices and other food items suitable for families in need.
Gloves are highly recommended since you will be working with your hands and handling heavy frozen food items.
Shoes that are comfortable should be worn because you will stand on your feet and move around often
Break down the cardboard boxes, and gather any leftover items for our driver to load back into the truck.
Personality is a plus! Get ready to interactive with local residents who are enthusiastic about your service.
Como se dice?..... while not needed or required, if you speak Spanish your skill will be utilized to the fullest extent.
