There are multiple opportunities for volunteering due to Community Food Connection's recent expansion.
Open Volunteer Positions
This volunteer coordinates our volunteers for CFC’s distribution hours by ensuring each shift is fully staffed. This position takes about two hours per week and includes the following tasks: send shift reminders, maintain volunteer database, request substitute volunteers, communicate with potential volunteers, and communicate with shift leaders.
The volunteer database is currently in a Microsoft Excel filtered spreadsheet and standard email communications are in Microsoft Word to minimize your time. If you prefer a different method to communicate and manage the database, we can discuss. We have a long list of volunteers who substitute on a regular basis.
More Than Food (MTF) Shopping Assistant – multiple positions
This volunteer guides the MTF members through their scheduled personal food shopping appointment and encourages the member to select nutritious food for their family. These appointments are scheduled every two weeks and should be at the same time each visit.
Thursday Evening Food Distribution Volunteer – multiple positions
This volunteer supports food distribution on the 2nd and 4th Thursday evenings of the month from 4:30 to 7:15 pm. This position can be either a regular position or a substitute position. Although the shift on the 2nd week is fully staffed, we need some more volunteers for the 4th week.
