Community Action Center of Faribault

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the CAC of Faribault! Please review the descriptions below in order to find your best volunteer area. Should you have any questions or concerns prior to signing-up, please reach out to Cheryl at [email protected]

**UPDATE: We are still in construction phase at the new food shelf, so we appreciate your patience as we navigate what our volunteer opportunities are on any given day. Stay tuned for more information as to when we can officially welcome community members into the food market. 

Volunteer areas are defined as follows for the Food Market:

Phones and Greeter: This volunteer will be the friendly face and voice of the organization; answering the general phone line and directing callers to the appropriate staff member, welcoming people as they arrive, orienting them to the space, and creating a welcoming and warm experience to everyone that visits. This is a great role for people that are outgoing, friendly, and culturally aware, with strong customer service skills.  (16+)  

Stocking and Inventory: This volunteer will be stocking items in the warehouse, date checking inventory, and refilling shelves in the Food Shelf. Must be able to lift up to 50 lbs, lift above their chest, and move inventory on carts. This is a great role for people that like to work behind the scenes, organizing and keeping the food shelf looking good and running smoothly.  (16+, younger if accompanied by an adult)

Warehouse and Receiving: This volunteer will assist in receiving the large shipments and food deliveries, sorting and packaging fresh produce and/or perishables in preparation for distribution, and loading vehicles for distribution events. Roles include repetitive motion, lifting up to 50 pound boxes, and using the warehouse equipment. This is a great role for people that enjoy physical work, have good spatial reasoning, and are comfortable using the warehouse equipment. (16+)

Cleaning and Organizing: This volunteer will assist with the closing-up and cleaning procedures to get the space ready for the next day. Roles include sanitizing surfaces, trash and recycling collection, and restocking/cleaning the restrooms. This is a great role for people available later in the day, who have an eye for detail and like to keep things tidy.  (16+ )

Shopping Helper: The volunteer will welcome participants and explain the grocery shopping experience. Families will shop for themselves and the volunteer will be available to answer questions, clean and prep shopping carts, and assist the shoppers as requested. This is a great role for people that are friendly and like being helpful while respecting the space and privacy of shoppers. (16+)

Food Rescue: This volunteer will collect the produce and other food items rescued from local producers and retailers from around the community, sort the produce, and stock it on the shelves. This is a great role for people that like to be out in the community and are invested in getting good food into the homes of our neighbors.  (18+ , requires background check) 

Mobile Food Access: This volunteer will support food access efforts in the community at distribution sites or through home deliveries. Roles include quality customer service, loading product into vehicles, traffic management, and possible data collection. This is a great role for people that are outgoing, friendly, able to work outside, and can lift 25-30 pounds on a repeated basis. (18+ , requires background check) 

**Please note, these are based on the anticipated opening-we will be in contact with you if timelines are changed
