Packers and Drivers for Food & Friends at Home Program
We are currently seeking volunteers to help pack and deliver food kits to children and youth in need, located in the Guelph, Wellington, and Dufferin areas through our Food & Friends at Home Program. Beginning in September, our goal is to provide up to 3,000 Food & Friends at Home kits every two weeks for school-aged children and youth so that we can continue bringing healthy food to hungry minds.
We are screening volunteers for this job with the following criteria.
Have no underlying medical issues;
Not be experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms;
Not be in quarantine;
Be able to work a 1-2 hour shift each week;
Have a vehicle, a valid driver's license, valid insurance, and a cell phone (if volunteering as a driver).
How does it work?
The number of volunteers needed will vary depending on the volume of requests we receive from families. When we are in need of a new packer or driver we will send you an email containing all the instructions necessary for you to complete your role. Volunteers will then be assigned a shift(s) based on their availability, with the hope that they will be able to commit to the same time slot each week. It is very important that volunteers arrive on time for their shifts, especially drivers, as we are rotating driver pick-ups to minimize volunteer-to-volunteer contact. If this system will be a problem for you, please let us know and we will work to accommodate your needs.
More detailed instructions will be provided prior to your first shift.
The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and the community is our number one priority and we are taking extra precautions when packaging and delivering all Food & Friends at Home supplies and following all recommended safety protocols.
