Drivers operate Hays County Food Bank vans and transport rescued food from communty partners to our warehouse for sorting. They may also transport food to distribution sites.
Drivers must have a valid Texas Driver's License and have no driving infractrions for the past 3 years. (Some offenses are acceptable.) Training will be provided. No CDL is needed.
These volunteers go out on food rescue runs and help weigh, sort, and build food orders for distribution. They will also help us maintain a clean environment in our warehouse.
Our volunteers in the warehouse are in charge of weighing, stocking, sorting, and packing rescued food for distribution. These volunteers will also do some light cleaning.
Distribution volunteers interact directly with the clients. These volunteers will help pack the vans and then distribute the food directly to the people in need. Volunteers will lift and carry boxes of food and also help clean up after distribution is over.
Twice a month, we partner with Central Texas Food Bank and help distribute food from one of their big trucks. Volunteers will assist in setting up and packing up the distribution as well as help distribute the food to those who need it. This shift takes place completely outdoors, rain or shine.
Occasionally, we need volunteers to help us out at events such as fundraisers or fairs. Volunteers may dress up in costume, solicit for donations, man a booth, or even more to help raise awareness of the food bank.
