KANSAS CITY - Mobile Food Pantry (Community Assistance)


  

Event Description:

48 percent of Harvesters agencies reported having no full-time staff. They rely on volunteers like you to make sure that the community receives the food they need.

 

Mobile food pantries provide nutritious food in areas where access to food assistance is limited. This program allows Harvesters to provide large quantities of fresh produce, and other nutritious food, where it is needed most.

 

Volunteers make it possible for pantries to distribute food. This is an outside opportunity. Tasks include:

    Assisting with traffic flow

    Managing sign-in sheets

    Loading food into cars

        Must be able to lift 5-20 pounds repetitively

    Assisting with cleanup

 

Please note the following:

    Always wear a mask

    Everyone is expected to wear the mask in a manner that fully covers your nose and mouth. Masks should not be worn below your nose.

    Keep client information confidential

Age Requirements

    Must be 18 years or older

Physical Requirements

    Able to lift 5-20 pounds repetitively

    Able to stand for the entire shift

    Able to bend

    Able to work outside
