Note: In December we are volunteering on the second Wednesday of the month, since the the Food Group is closed on the third Wednesday, which would be our usual day.)
Join fellow humanists and freethinkers to help sort and pack food at the Food Group Warehouse. The food we sort and pack will eventually be distributed to the nearly 200 food shelves/Fare-for-All Centers that the Food Group services. The Food Group is a secular, NON-faith based non-profit organization whose mission is to “serve the hunger needs of our changing communities”.
Warehouse Volunteers assist with projects including:
· Bulk repacking of items such as oatmeal, rice, beans, or pasta
· Assembling boxes for food distribution
· Sorting donated goods
· Cleaning and sanitation of the workspace
Minimum volunteer age is 12, and all minors must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
The following is from the The Food Group:
Thank you for signing up to volunteer at The Food Group! All new participants MUST fill out a volunteer waiver at sign-in.
We will begin promptly at the scheduled shift time- please try to arrive 5-10 minutes early to wash hands and get settled so we can begin right at 1:00!
Please wear comfortable work clothes and note that closed-toed shoes and pants are required. For safety in the warehouse, please wear tops that cover the torso to the waistline. You are welcome to bring snacks (keep in mind that snacks may only be enjoyed in the volunteer orientation room). (P.S. Some snacks are usually provided by the Food Group.)
If for any reason you are uncomfortable or unable to do a certain duty, please let the staff know when you arrive.
We look forward to hosting you as we complete this important work for our community!
Hope to see you there!
P.S.: Please remember to keep your RSVP up to date, so that people on the wait-list can sign up and we can show up with a full crew!
