Food Box Delivery Driver Volunteer (age 18+) Referral


Clackamas Service Center (CSC) is an inclusive "one-stop" community center for individuals and families seeking food relief and resources for improved health, dignity, and stability. This is a no/low contact volunteer position delivering groceries to the homes and apartments of people who have requested free food from our pantry. 

Volunteers will learn about food insecurity in our community; work with community partners that support food distribution; and gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be the last link for families to receive free groceries.

This is a great employee engagement opportunity or a reliable group opportunity. Groups could reserve a time slot and have rotating individuals fill the reserve shifts each week! Please email Volunteer Coordinator Celess Roman Celessroman@cscoregon.org to learn more about group volunteering. 

To take part in this opportunity, you must be able to commit to a minimum of 1 shift every other week or two months.

  • Must have a vehicle with storage space (think SUV size)

At its heart, Clackamas Service Center is a community-centered non-profit. Through the support of caring individuals, service clubs, churches, businesses, government agencies, and other non-profits, we are able to provide food and other free resources to any community member who needs them. Every person or organization involved with Clackamas Service Center as a member, donor, partner, or volunteer is part of a great ecosystem, working together to make life better for everyone in our community. Our work relies on the support of over 500 donors, 300 volunteers, and dozens of partner agencies each year. We believe that any community member can make an impact here, whether through donating money, time, or resources, or by simply spreading the word about the work we do.
