We have room on the following session day(s):
Drivers and Driver Helpers:
Support the distribution and pick-up of food at the Food Depository! Every weekday morning, volunteer teams drive Food Depository vehicles to deliver fresh produce to member agencies or pick up food drive donations at local organizations. We are looking for volunteer drivers and helpers to volunteer at least once per week. Volunteers must be able to lift up to 50 pounds (will be paired up with a helper), and be willing to undergo a background check, and drug screening to become a driver helper. If you are interested in becoming a driver helper, contact Mark Barnfield at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-843-7794.
Ensure the daily distribution of food runs smoothly by helping out in our Agency Waiting Area. Every weekday morning (6:45am-1pm) agencies visit the warehouse to pick up food orders for their distributions. Volunteers will greet and check in agency representatives, print order paperwork, and facilitate the order pick up process. Must be comfortable with computers and available to help out on a weekly basis. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, contact Emily Daniels at email@example.com.
Students performing service hours for school must sign up in advance. You must be at least 16 or older to volunteer unaccompanied. Volunteers ages 14-16 must be accompanied by an adult. Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule your service learning hours.
We also have an ongoing, immediate need for a few volunteers to help load trucks on our loading dock for at least three hours every Monday through Friday. We have several shifts available to choose from. Please note that you must be at least 16 years old and able to lift up to 50 pounds. Please fill out this form if you are interested in volunteering on the loading dock.
