This volunteer event has the greatest need for volunteer assistance and involves directly distributing food to our clients by assisting our delivery driver on their regular routes. 

The Lena Watkins Senior Brown Program is aimed to assist elderly struggling with food insecurity by providing a substantial bag of food for food assistance. These 35-40 pound brown paper bags are filled with a variety of nutritious, shelf-stable foods and beverages with additional produce and dairy product. This position not only assists in distributing food to our clients, but also in picking up donations from local grocery stores on our driver's regular route. 

Volunteers assigned to this position will ride along with our delivery driver in a Food Bank van to deliver 35-pound grocery bags to a list of individual clients. For each location, the volunteer will walk a bag to the client's door, ring the doorbell and notify them of a Food Bank delivery, and return back to the Food Bank van. Some locations for delivery may be shared living facilities in which you may assist the driver in delivering bags to the correct numbered dormitory. 

When assisting in recieving donations, the volunteer will simply help load and organize donated product into the vehichle and assist in unloading and organizing food by category for inventory purposes after returning to the Food Bank. 

Because of the time-sensitivity for this event, it is crucial that volunteers have arrived at the facility and signed in by 9:15AM for departure by 9:20AM. Because this position is off-site, a bathroom during this shift may not be guaranteed (although the driver may be able to stop at a public restroom during deliveries if requested, although not guaranteed). While this shift is posted from 9:15AM to 1:00PM, depending on the delivery schedule, volunteers may complete this activity earlier, but not later, than listed and will be credited the full allotted time for this event.

As a reminder, we do not offer community service hours for volunteer work.
