Sorters and Food Handlers deal with the influx of food donations by sorting into categories and storing items in appropriate places. There is also a great deal of repackaging (we make up smaller bags of items like coffee, tea, rice, pet food, etc.) to be done. There may be some lifting involved, and it is a wide and varied occupation. There is also the possibility the volunteer will be asked to assist in handing out food to Food Bank clients when needed, and volunteers may be asked to assist in picking up food donations that come in from the various grocery stores in Campbell River
Friendly, outgoing and non-judgemental folks with 4 hours to space once or twice weekly would be ideal.
Food Bank Board Policy requirements are that volunteers are not current clients of the Food Bank and a Criminal Records Check is also a must. These positions are for Monday and Friday from 10 A.M. to 2 p.m.
This activity generally occurs on
- Monday Morning
