We offer one-time volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups up to forty people at our DC Warehouse. These projects typically involve but are not limited to:
Packing and Sorting: Donated food is inspected for quality and either sorted into bins or re-packaged into useable sizes for our agencies.
Shopping Floor/Loading Docks Volunteers: Volunteers help on our loading docks assisting partner agencies in picking up their orders & stocking shelves. Volunteers also are used to maintain the warehouse and assist in keeping the warehouse clean.
Administrative Tasks: Volunteers are also used to work on general office tasks such as data entry, stuffing envelopes and filling paperwork.
