Foodmobile (mobile food pantry) Volunteers

Description

Foodmobiles are mobile food pantries focused on alleviating hunger among vulnerable populations.  Foodmobiles target rural and under-served communities.  Volunteers are needed to set up the food distribution area, hand out product to recipients, help recipients carry product to their cars, and clean up after distribution is complete. Every distribution has at least one Captain. This is a volunteer who has been trained on Foodmobile distributions and will be the main contact and volunteer coordinator on the day of the distribution. All volunteers should meet at the Foodmobile site at the specified time.  A short orientation will be provided by a Foodmobile Captain or EIF Staff member on-site at that time.  This volunteer project requires volunteers to lift, bend and stand during distribution preparation and throughout the distribution period.

All volunteers must arrive on-site at 8:45am.  Food distribution will wrap up around 12:15pm.  

If you can help, sign up to volunteer here.

Final Date: 

Saturday, June 23, 2018 - 12:15pm
