If you already have some prior history working for a supermarket or similar, then you might find yourself very much at home as a volunteer. Donated food must be transported, stored, sorted, shelved, and rotated out as the need arises. Floors must be swept, tables must be cleaned and arranged, and occasionally some people may need assistance in carrying food to their vehicles. For those who are young or lacking in such a background, volunteering may still provide an invaluable experience.
There are other ways to volunteer as well. For example, every Monday there is a free meal offered to senior citizens aged 55 and above. This meal is prepared entirely by volunteers. If you enjoy cooking, then it's something you might consider.
In addition to the personal satisfaction that comes from helping the local community, as a volunteer you can also gain benefits.
If you do find yourself interested in becoming a volunteer, then please view the contact page for ways to get in touch with one of our directors. Any help that you might be able to provide will be appreciated.
