Weekdays
A few hours per week

Volunteers need to be at least 18 years old and because of the COVID-19, we prefer volunteers be younger than 50 (for the protection of the volunteer).

 Food Pantry Distribution Schedule:

 Tuesdays, 10:00 – 1:00 and Thursdays, 10:00 – 1:00

 The volunteer duties could include the following:

 Social Distancing Monitors – Bilingual Spanish or Mandarin or Korean or Vietnamese preferred. Position requires monitoring and enforcing the 6’ social distancing formation of clients as they wait in line for their food distribution. These positions are outside.

Parking Lot Monitors – Direct Food Pantry clients who are arriving and departing via car. These positions are outside.

Check-in – Again, bilingual Spanish or Mandarin or Korean or Vietnamese preferred. Position verifies client ID and notates client’s visit to the Food Pantry on that specific day.

Back of House Fulfillment and Distribution – Ability to fill and lift 10-20 pound bags of food for distribution to clients.

Food Bag Distribution – Ability to carry (2) 20-pound bags of food to clients who are waiting in their cars. This is a new process added due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 All volunteers will be given gloves and face masks as personal protection equipment. Volunteers should wear comfortable clothing. In the event of rain, volunteers need to wear rain gear and bring their own umbrella, as they may have a volunteer activity that requires them to stand outside. With this said, we will do our best to station first-time volunteers inside.

Volunteers need to be at least 18 years old and because of the COVID-19, we prefer volunteers be younger than 50 (for the protection of the volunteer).
