Holiday Volunteering

CLICK HERE TO VOLUNTEER FOR EASTER

Special Pandemic Notice

We will be doing all home delivered meals on Easter Day to people age 60 and older who will be alone on the holiday. To keep everyone safe, we will be following the latest state and local Covid-19 guidelines. All volunteers will be screened, are required to wear face masks, and practice safe social distancing and all kitchen volunteers are required to wear a face shield over their face masks. Face shields will be provided. Follow the link above to register to volunteer.

Please watch this 7 minute mandatory training video on safe food handling, packaging, and delivery practices during the Covid-19 pandemic. We are following the state’s executive orders and CDC recommendations. We require all volunteers and staff to do the same.

Please watch this short 1 minute tutorial on how to properly fill, fold, and seal the meal delivery bag. Proper food packaging is a barrier between the food and potential contamination, the packaging is a key factor in our safe delivery process. It is important to limit the number of people handling the contents of each bag.
