What to Expect During the Volunteer Shift:
In general, volunteers repackage bulk foods such as potatoes, onions, cereal, rice, and other dry goods into family size packages, sort food from food drives and donations, or label canned goods. These items go to our nearly 1,000 partner agencies, including food shelves and feeding programs that serve our hungry neighbors. This position requires that you are able to stand for several hours.
