ATTENTION: ALL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES WITH THE FOOD BANK OF NORTHEAST GEORGIA AFTER APRIL 2021 HAVE BEEN MOVED TO OUR NEW SIGNUP SITE:
A mobile pantry distribution is an outdoor drive-thru grocery service in which the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia provides groceries directly to food-insecure families within our region.
Expected volunteer tasks at a mobile pantry include: using basic math skills, repeatedly lifting groceries up to 35 pounds, helping direct traffic, basic customer service skills to provide friendly and efficient service, and standing for 2-4 hours. At each mobile pantry, disposable masks, gloves, sanitizer, and water will be provided for all volunteers. At each mobile pantry, all volunteers are required to always wear a face mask over both their nose and mouth as well as disposable gloves to follow CDC certified Covid-19 guidelines.
Volunteers should wear close-toed shoes (no sandals, flip flops) and dress in clothes best suited for the weather.
Under inclement weather, the mobile pantry may have a cancellation, in which each volunteer will be contacted and updated. Otherwise, the mobile pantry will continue under reasonable weather circumstances.
Parking for the event will be located at Chase Street School: 757 N Chase St, Athens, GA 30601. All volunteers will be expected to use this location for parking, located across the street from the distribution site.
Upon arrival, please ensure to sign in on our Volunteer Log, located at our Volunteer table, to ensure your volunteer service hours will be properly registered. If for any reason you are not able to attend the event within the week, please contact us at [email protected]nknega.org or by giving us a call at: (706) 354-8191, extension 113.
