Special call for volunteers

Hopelink has an immediate need for volunteers at all five food banks. Tasks include behind-the-scenes help boxing food, bagging produce, sorting donated food and other needs, as well as distributing the boxes to community members at outside entrances. Days and times vary, with a variety of daytime shifts available. Must be able to lift up to 35 pounds.

In addition – when we are able to confirm a date for re-opening all centers to the public – we will need help re-stocking the shelves, as we prepare to welcome clients back into our grocery store-style food banks!

And finally, once food bank doors are officially open, we will need volunteers both behind-the-scenes and serving clients, sorting and bagging food, re-stocking shelves and checking clients in and out.
