Food to the Rescue

FTTR July '22 Distribution

Volunteers are vital to the success of Food to the Rescue. We are in need of volunteers to donate their time to assist in delivering the food to the children's homes as well as unboxing, packing, and organizing the food boxes to go out for delivery.

Job Descriptions:

Unboxing- When we order bulk food, it comes in big boxes, and then smaller boxes amd some stuff is wrapped in plastic. We need to get all that food out of those boxes and plastic cut off so we can easily individually pack each food item. Possibly using box cutters or scissors.  

packing kid boxes-  Pick a spot at the roller table, when a box rolls your way, pack that quantity of food you are in charge of and push the box to the next person. We also need tapers that tape the box shut. 

Packing family boxes-  Same as packing kid boxes.

DELIVERY DRIVER- The MOST IMPORTANT JOB OF ALL! We currently serve around 600 kids. That is over 40 routes all over Putnam Co (excluding Monterey, we deliver separately up there~ If you'd like to deliver in Monterey, please contact us) Each route has 3-5 homes which you will receive the address to deliver the food directly to the children. We will give you an instruction card before we send you out, but basically you will sign in when you arrive, then you will be given food to load into your car and addresses. We ask that you call the home to let them know you are on your way, a simple "Hi, I'm a volunteer with Food to the Rescue, and I'm on my way to your home to deliver food to your child." The majority of our recipients have been on our program for a while and are used to having a volunteer deliver food to their home.

Please consider helping, not only us, but a child that otherwise may not have food during Summer Break. Most of the recipients are EXTREMELY thankful, and it'll brighten your day to see the excitement on the Childs face when they receive their food! You will need a current background check. (If you've had one in the last year by another organization, church, work, etc, Please let us know.) We will also need a copy of your DL, and auto insurance. (If you've not given it to us before and there are no changes in your info) Time from signing in, loading car and delivering food may take an hour to hour and half. MUST BE 18yrs+ to Drive. ALL AGES WELCOME TO RIDE ALONG!

You will need a current background check. Please email [email protected] if you haven't had one in the past 3 years.
