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