.At this time we are only seeking additional volunteers that have been tested for Covid 19 recently . If you want to volunteer, and have not been tested recently, you can check out www.gogettested.com for convenient locations for testing. Once you have been tested, email Dallas Newell at firstname.lastname@example.org with the hours and days you are available..We appreciate your support and interest in DCFC.
The Food Center is a 100% Volunteer staffed & run, Donor funded & supported, Community based charity.
The majority of the work (sacking groceries, sorting food, stocking shelves, interviewing and serving clients) occurs during the normal operating hours. Some limited volunteer opportunities (unloading the Food Bank truck at 7:00 AM every Monday morning) occur at other hours.
We are most interested in people who can volunteer on a regular basis (one day per week or twice per month). However, we do accept short-term volunteers on an as needed basis and on a first come first accepted basis. When we have a full shift of regular volunteers we may turn away short-term volunteers.
Please contact us for opportunities and details.
