Packing and Warehouse Crew volunteers work together as a team (physically distance) to accurately pick and pack fresh food and frozen meals into customized baskets for home delivery.
Please note: There is a physical element to this role. Some of the produce is heavy or awkward. For example: a full cabbage, bag of potatoes and the full food baskets.
Packing and Warehouse Crew works on Tuesday and Friday 11-3pm. We do not have evening or weekend shifts.
*** Note: Due to the high number of applications and limited spaces open, we are not able to place everyone that applies. While we appreciate everyone who shows interest and applies, volunteers are offered roles based on best fit.
