Event Description:

Food Bank of Alaska works with volunteers in an assembly line to build and pack 2100 CSFP boxes each month. The Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) works to improve the health of low-income persons at least 60 years of age by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods. These events will be kept to 10 volunteers or fewer to minimize social contact. 

 

Upon arriving at Food Bank of Alaska, enter through the "Office/Sales" door. Sign in on the sign-in sheet or on your phone, then follow the arrows to the volunteer area in the warehouse. 

 

Please wear closed-toed shoes and bring layers of clothing for this event. Those wearing open toed shoes will be turned away. Volunteers should be able to be on their feet for the full shift. Some volunteers will be asked to bend and lift 25-35 pound boxes. Volunteers are encouraged to bring working gloves and a water bottle with a lid.

 

Please note that we cannot take volunteers who are under the age of 10 at this event.

 

There are fewer Senior Box Build shifts offered this November to accommodate special partner groups who are also volunteering. 

 

In the event that Anchorage School District closes due to inclement weather or unsafe roads, Food Bank of Alaska volunteer events will also close for the day. Food Bank of Alaska does not close if only Mat-Su schools are closed. 

 

We need a specific number of volunteers to ensure we are able to efficiently serve all clients so we request the following:

  • Please bring only those in your group that have signed up in advance.
  • Do not plan to attend if you are still on the waitlist on event day.
  • Please make sure to cancel your registration if you cannot make it so that we can open up your spot for other volunteers. There is a link to cancel registration in the event confirmation email, or you can cancel registration on our website.

We look forward to working with you!

 

A note about COVID-19: Due to the recent surges in COVID-19 cases, masks are required for volunteers and staff at all indoor events, including Senior Box Build, regardless of vaccination status. Thank you for helping to protect our organization and clients. Please help your fellow volunteers, our staff, and our food recipients by being sure to wash your hands thoroughly and not coming in to volunteer if you are not feeling well or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever, or loss of taste.
