All individuals working in the warehouse must be age 12 or older. Youth ages 12 to 15 must be accompanied by an adult guardian in a ratio of 1 adult for every 4 youth.  Volunteers are expected to wear a face mask and/or face shield covering nose and mouth at all times; closed toe shoes must be worn.  Groups and individuals assigned to Quality Assurance will work on one or more of these tasks, depending on current need: Sort non-perishable food items. This includes checking food safety of items that have been donated through a food drive, from a grocer, or through a food distributor. Volunteers will be checking for secure packages, food quality dates, and sorting with like items (all the beans in one bin, all the macaroni products to another bin, etc.). Pack non-perishable food for our Mobile Pantry program or for emergency food relief.  This is an assembly-line process where we pack bags or boxes of food. Prepare youth-friendly food bags for our Backpack program.  This crew of volunteers will be repacking fresh produce (fresh potatoes, bags of onions, etc.)

We have reserved 7 volunteer positions for our Rotary club.
