DISTRIBUTION SUPERVISORS NEEDED FOR TUESDAY EVENINGS
AFAC plans to open a second evening for food distribution starting this November. We are looking for volunteers to serve as supervisors on Tuesday nights, 6:15-8:45pm, weekly, bi-monthly or monthly. Year long commitment preferred. Spanish-speaking volunteers welcome. Read more – supervisor job description, evening distribution description. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or with questions.
WEEKEND SUPERVISORS NEEDED
AFAC is looking for people willing to supervise other volunteers as they bag produce on weekend afternoons. AFAC receives thousands of pounds of beautiful produce donated by local farmers markets. Volunteers unload the produce from the van as it arrives, refresh and clean it, and then bag it for distribution to AFAC’s 1,500 client families. During the winter and early spring, weekend volunteers bag rice, oatmeal or purchased produce, sort food donations and do other tasks.
We are looking for volunteers who can make a commitment to help 1-2 times per month from May-December. Supervisor hours are noon-2:30 on Saturday or 1-3:30 on Sunday. Supervisors should be comfortable directing other volunteers. Training will be provided. For more information, contact Laura Jackson at email@example.com.
If you’re looking for a way to get more involved at AFAC and a way to help ensure that our clients have access to fresh, healthy produce, this is a great volunteer opportunity for you.
