How to Apply
Food Banks are an essential service and must continue operations through the COVID-19 response. Processes are in place to keep volunteer numbers on site low, and social distancing measures are in place.
You can apply to volunteer using our easy online application (you will be asked to create a username and password for our volunteer system).
During the social distancing required by COVID-19 we are still bringing in a number of new volunteers, with a contact free email/phone orientation process. The length of the wait is a function of available positions, your availability, and your experience/skills. Adding more detail to your application will help us match you to a role.
Current Volunteer Opportunities
Food Bank Volunteers (many roles)
We have modified our shifts in response to COVID-19. We have shifts throughout the day Monday 9 am - 7:30 pm, Tuesday 1 pm-5 pm, Wednesday 9 am-5 pm and Friday 9 am-5 pm. Since we have transitioned to a hamper model during COVID-19, most roles involve sorting donations, packing hampers and distributing hampers.
We are now taking orders for custom hampers (instead of having clients come shop in our food bank Market). This has created new office roles to reach out to clients to take orders, and book arrival times for them to pick up. This role requires someone with a good phone manner and attention to detail. It's an important way for us to connect with our clients and let them know we care.
Specialized Volunteer Roles
We are frequently in need of the following specialized skills to support our ongoing operations:
- Online Forms development (Cognito Forms)
- Wordpress site development
- Food Drive Coordination
- Media Coordination
If one of these roles interest you please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our volunteer manager Sheryl would be pleased to discuss these roles further with you.
