Du Nord Foundation Community Market

Come Volunteer with us!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Du Nord Foundation Community Market. We feel a community-supported food shelf is a welcoming place for a neighbor to find free, healthy and fresh foods for their table, no questions asked. It's a place where neighbors can help neighbors; a safe place to get groceries, other resources, or a chance to give back in meaningful ways.

We are located at 3140 Snelling Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55406

All volunteer positions require the use of a face mask, and proper Covid safety precautions will be followed. All Covid safety equipment is provided by the Food Shelf. 

Please read the requirements for voluntering before signing up for a shift.

What to expect when I arrive for my shift

 

Below you will find descriptions of the various volunteer opportunites we have available. If you have volunteered with us before, note that we have streamlined the roles and divided them by shift.

Group/Family Friendly Shift

This shift is similar to our Task Support shift but is geared towards families with children who want to volunteer. We want this shift to be a learning opportunity for kids and families who want to learn more about mutual aid and connecting with community in meaningful ways. Volunteers in this shift will help with tasks such as sorting and putting away donations, putting together boxes, cleaning/sanitizing, and running trash and cardboard to the dumpsters. This position will require a fair amount of walking, bending, and lifting. This shift will usually have little contact with neighbors. There are 6 slots available so please put the names of each person in attendance. We ask that everyone who participates be over the age of 6. 

Prep Shift  

Volunteers signed up for the Prep Shift will mainly be responsible for filling orders prior to the start of distribution and will work in a team of 2-3 people. They will also help us with various tasks such as putting together boxes, sorting donations, and putting away orders. This shift will require a fair amount of walking, bending, and lifting. Volunteers will have limited contact with neighbors who are coming to distribution.

Distribution Shift 

Volunteers signed up for the Distribution Shift will mainly be responsible for getting orders to neighbors during our distribution hours. They will greet neighbors, organize orders, and bring groceries out to cars. We will also have volunteers complete tasks as needed such as putting together boxes, stocking, and filling orders. This shift will require a fair amount of walking, bending, and lifting, and much of it will take place outside. Volunteers in this shift will have the most contact with neighbors who are coming to distribution. We highly encourage volunteers with Spanish language proficiency to sign up for this shift.


*New*

We are now offering tabling shifts! Volunteers who sign up for tabling shifts will be responsible for engaging community members at events, handing out promotional materials, and sharing information about the Community Market and its neighborhood impact. These shifts will primarily occur on weekends on an as needed basis. A mandatory training session must be completed prior to signing up for tabling so if you are interested please email [email protected] for more information on how to participate.
