Farmers Market Volunteers
Grow & Give, HDFFA's fresh food drive and only program of its kind in Central Oregon, collects produce from farmers, market patrons, and gardeners at local Farmers Markets. A Grow & Give Northwest Crossing Farmers Market Volunteer will assist market staff at the end of the NWX Farmers Market to collect, weigh, and potentially transport market produce to cold storage a few miles away. A vehicle is preferred for this position (if needed in a pinch to help transport produce) but if you do not have one and still want to volunteer, please let us know!
Duties will include:
- Lifting objects of up to 50 pounds
- Helping break down the market booth
- Weighing and recording food donations using basic math skills
- Verbally engaging with market patrons and farmers
- Learning and sharing about HDFFA programs
Saturday shifts are located at the NWX Farmers Market. We ask that volunteers interested in this opportunity sign up for a MINIMUM OF 3 SHIFTS throughout the season, as some training/ consistency is required.
Email [email protected] with any questions. Please review the available slots below, choose 3 (or more!), and click on the button for each slot to sign up. You will recieve a confirmation email from Abigail within 48 hours.
