Pantry Session Assistant

The River Food Pantry

• Pack boxes, including shelf-stable boxes, produce boxes, and dairy boxes, with various items (lists of items to be included will be provided). • Sort incoming donations in order to make packing boxes more efficient. This may include meat, dairy, produce, shelf-stable items, eggs, etc. • Add food items to shopping carts. This is done as clients visit and fill out a menu of requested items. Our volunteers take each menu and fill the order, then return the filled cart to the correct client's vehicle. • Load client cars outside as they visit the pantry. This includes rolling full shopping carts outside, packing trucks or backseats with the items, being respectful and welcoming to the clients as they shop, and bringing empty carts back inside to be re-packed. PLEASE NOTE: We ask that you be flexible in moving between tasks as needed. Staff will always be available to answer questions.

Food, resources, and faith to build a stronger community.
