  • Must wear closed-toe shoes.
  • Volunteers must be at least 10 years old.

Due to the nature of working with mostly donated foods, volunteer projects are not always guaranteed to come in on time or at all.  Volunteer shifts may need to be shortened or rescheduled if projects are completed or unavailable. We will make every effort to provide a two-week notice if volunteer shifts will need to be rescheduled.
