Individual Volunteering

Volunteering During COVID-19

Kitchen volunteer shifts are currently Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Volunteers can expect to help with tasks like peeling and chopping vegetables, portioning and packaging food, and packing meal bags for delivery to our clients.

Please note that all volunteers must sanitize their hands and take their temperature when entering our building. If you have a temperature of 100.3°F or more, you will be asked to return home. Before entering our kitchen, you’ll wash your hands, and put on a hat or hairnet, apron, and protective gloves.

Due to a limited supply, we ask that you bring a clean face mask with you. A bandana or other cloth face covering may also be used if you do not have a face mask at home.

Click here to access the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) instructions for making your own cloth face covering, including quick and easy no-sew versions.

 

HEALTH & SAFETY

Please remember that in order to enter our building or volunteer during the pandemic, you cannot have:

  • Traveled outside the U.S. within the last two weeks
  • Been in contact with someone in the last two weeks who has or may have contracted COVID-19
  • Experienced cold or flu-like symptoms in the last 72-hours

We are asking all volunteers to try to avoid using public transportation or ride-sharing services to travel to Community Servings, as the CDC recommends avoiding them as part of proper social distancing. We have plenty of parking spaces available in the lots adjacent to our building, which you are welcome to use.
