Connecticut Food Bank has upcoming volunteer opportunities during the month of August at its summer supper mobile pantry sites in New Haven and Fairfield Counties. The following volunteer positions are available:
- Driver assistants to help the mobile pantry driver unload food items and set up tables for food distribution
- Volunteers to collect data at mobile pantry sites used for metric reporting
- Volunteers to assist with food distribution (great as a group activity for eight-ten people)
All volunteer shifts take place in the afternoon or early evening and have a time commitment of two to four hours. These are great opportunities for you, your family, or your workplace to get involved with hunger awareness in Connecticut.
Connecticut Food Bank CEO, Bernie Beaudreau, has worked alongside volunteers in many capacities. “Volunteers are vital to the success of our work. Without them, we could not reach even a fraction of the people in need that we currently serve. Volunteers help us in many ways, from office work to food sorting and distribution and in education and advocacy. Each role is necessary for us to fulfill our mission,” he said.
