Fresh Food Sorting & Repacking at OFB (age 16+) *Hands On*

Oregon Food Bank http://www.oregonfoodbank.org

     

Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

Join the Oregon Food Bank in our mission to eliminate hunger and its root causes. Inspect, sort and repack all things refrigerated! You'll see fresh fruits and veggies, yogurt, meat, sandwiches and other nutritious foods that are highly valued by partner agencies and clients. Because we are working with perishable food in OFB's Fresh Alliance program, volunteers work in a room kept at 50 degrees. 

Please remember to wear closed-toe, closed-heel shoes, and clothing you wouldn't mind getting just a little dirty. Must be comfortable bending and standing on concrete in a temperature-controlled (50 degree) room.

The length of Fresh Alliance shifts is directly related to the amount
of food we receive from the grocery stores that day. The end time is the latest the shift will go but we may end earlier!

Please note that this is a very small shift and OFB is counting on you to show up if you sign up!

What one volunteer says about volunteering in the Fresh Alliance program: "Fresh Alliance gets the healthiest foods out to people who need it so they don't just have to rely on canned or dry goods. I can't think of a better use of my time." - Tom


Project Requirements:

  • You must be 16 years of age or older to attend this project.
    All volunteers under 18 are required to bring a Youth Volunteer Release Form signed by their parent or legal guardian. Please download, complete, and bring this waiver with you on the day of the project.

  • If you plan to bring children/additional volunteers you MUST reserve slots for them. The best way to do this is to create a Volunteer Team, then sign up your team for this project. Questions? Email teams@handsonportland.org 

  • IMPORTANT NOTE: You are responsible for ensuring that everyone signed up through your team attends - only sign up team members who have confirmed their availability. Teams that repeatedly sign up, but do not show up or show up with fewer volunteers than they signed up, may be removed. To add or remove team members from a project: log in to your volunteer account and click "Manage My Team" next to the appropriate upcoming opportunity.
