Stock the Cupboard: Oregon Food Bank (age 6+) *Hands On*

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 Oregon Food Bank and help them in their mission to eliminate hunger and its root causes. Unpack and sort donated food destined for agencies that directly serve low income people in Oregon. Your presence makes a huge difference, and, it's a lot of fun! Please wear closed-toed, closed-heeled shoes, and clothing you wouldn't mind getting just a little dirty.

NOTE: If you are a court-ordered volunteer, you will need to contact Oregon Food Bank directly to determine whether you are eligible to volunteer. Please contact Laura Yeary at volunteer@oregonfoodbank.org or 503.972.2993.

Please note: OFB's highest need is often in the Perishable Repack Room, which is temperature controlled at about 50 degrees. It is possible that our volunteer group will be utilized in the Perishable Repack Room instead of the Volunteer Action Center, depending on where OFB has donations that need to be processed. It is important that everyone be very flexible, and bring an extra layer (sweatshirt) in case we are moved.

TEAMS NOTE: If you are signing up as a Team, you are limited to reserving 8 slots. If you have more than 8 in your group, please sign up through the Oregon Food Bank's Group sign up page.
