Food Pantry Volunteers Needed

Please sign up by clicking here.  

Volunteers Needed Who Are:

·       Able to self-supervise and maintain safe food handling procedures

·       Under 60 years old and those who do not have any underlying medical conditions, symptoms, or compromised immune system.

·      Able to maintain safe social distancing: if you or someone you live with is in the high risk group due to age or medical condition, we ask you please to stay at home. This may be difficult for many of you anxious to help out, but it’s best for the entire community.

The Interfaith Food Pantry has been operating by rotating responsibility for each pantry among the member churches, with each church staffing their distribution from volunteers in their communities. During the COVID19 emergency, many regular Food Pantry volunteers need to practice social isolation for their safety and the safety of the community. Calvary and other local faith-based organizations are banding together to staff each Saturday with healthy, safe volunteers. We will be modifying how we organize the distribution to maximize safety for volunteers and participants. Please do not volunteer if you have cold or flu symptoms, are in a high-risk group, or need to practice social isolation. We will not be able to eliminate all risks, but we will do our best to minimize them. Circumstances are changing quickly, please check your email for changes and notifications.

Although some spots are filled, we need continue to need volunteers through the spring and summer.

Questions? Please contact Betsy Dodd at Betsydodd@mac.com or Paula Jesson at dpjbj@sbcglobal.net.

 

Note: Food Pantry service conforms with current City and Department of Public Health guidelines, which provide for continued food distribution to vulnerable populations. Organizers will cancel the pantry if guidelines change.
