This volunteer provides excellent customer service to our seniors and works alongside other volunteers to ensure the distribution runs smoothly. This volunteer can assist in distribution setup, recertification of participants, and help participants carry their box and/or loading them into their vehicles. Site Volunteers need to be comfortable with face-to-face interaction, working with participants who may speak a different language, and comfortable working with confidential information. This is a once-a-month position for 1.5-3 hours per shift. This role can be physical, fast-paced, and is a wonderful and direct way to help seniors at risk of hunger!

Current Needs:

  • Ebenezer Park Apartments on the 2nd Monday of the month from 12:15-2:15pm at 2700 Park Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55407. (Emphasis on lifting boxes.)
