Event description
ACCFB is responding to unprecedented need due to the COVID-19 emergency.

About this Event

During your shifts, you will be making a huge impact, sorting and packing thousands of pounds of farm-fresh produce and dry goods for neighbors struggling with hunger.

As we gradually re-open our volunteer efforts to community volunteering and in order to minimize the risk of virus exposure, we are aiming to limit the number of unduplicated volunteers.  We are seeking volunteers (ages 18+) who can commit to joining us for full days, at least once a week, for at least 5 weeks. Volunteers are welcome to sign up for more than one day.

All volunteers will be required to:

  • Complete a daily health survey addressing areas including but not limited to symptoms, social distancing, and travel.
  • Adhere to distancing guidelines.
  • Wear self-provided face coverings that meet CDC standards.
  • Wash hands frequently, assist in facility sanitizing, and follow all CDC recommendations.

We encourage volunteers to follow CDC recommendations that populations at higher risk of severe COVID-19 illness (65+ and those with underlying medical conditions) continue to self-isolate, but we will not be barring them from volunteer service. 

Due to the work involved in our emergency response, we ask that volunteers are able to: 

  • Stand and walk on concrete for up to 3 hours at a time.
  • Bend and reach repetitively.
  • Regularly lift 10 pound bags and occasionally assist with 30-pound boxes.
  • Tolerate bright lights and some noise (e.g. forklifts and heavy equipment, as well as amplified music).
  • Be prepared for cool mornings and warm afternoons. The warehouse is not climate-controlled.
