Pack and sort food at The Food Group

With emergency food needs rising, The Food Group needs volunteers to pack food boxes and get them distributed in a short period of time.

Warehouse volunteers will assist with projects including:

  • Bulk repacking of items such as oatmeal, rice, beans, or past
  • Assembling boxes for distribution
  • Sorting donated goods
  • Recycling cardboard and boxes 

Volunteers are required to wear a face mask while they are volunteering with The Food Group If you are sick (fever, cough, shortness of breath), stay home and seek medical treatment. If you have been exposed/known potential to COVID-19 within the last 14 days- we ask that you refrain from volunteering at this time. 

Volunteers ages 12-16 must be accompanied by an adult. 

In addition to these considerations, The Food Group has made the following enhancements to our volunteer protocol, to further ensure the safety of all participants and volunteers: Hands will be washed before and provided gloves will be worn during each shift. Cleaning and sanitization of the workspace will be completed between every shift.

Other notes: Parking available in the lot Enter along the west sidewalk (right side of the building) and through the sliding glass doors Please wear close-toed shoes, and something comfortable for working in a warehouse.

Please let us know if you require special accommodations.
