Please join us for this special opportunity to give back to our community, while networking with our ACHE peers and their families.
ACHENTX is organizing a group of volunteers to help with quality control at Tarrant Area Food Bank’s distribution center, where donated food products are sorted, inspected and repacked for distribution to a network of partner organizations in a 13-county area. Volunteers will be making a BIG impact by helping ensure our neighbors in need receive safe, quality food.
Volunteer roles can include, but are not limited to:
1. Sorting, cans, grocery items and packaged meats
2. Preparing boxes
3. Manual pallet jack operating
5. Pallet wrapping using shrink wrap6. Taking cardboard to onsite compactor
Unless other arrangements are made, volunteers should be able to stand for extended periods of time and lift 30-40 pounds.
Minimum Age and Chaperones:
Individuals as young as 12 years old and 55 inches tall may volunteer for this event. Children ages 12-13 require one adult chaperone for every 1 to 3 children volunteering. Kids ages 14-15 years old require one adult chaperone for every 1 to 10 youth. Because Tarrant Area Food Bank is concerned about the safety of all volunteers, there are no exceptions to this policy.
Closed toed shoes must be worn by all volunteers.
Thank you for wanting to help! We look forward to seeing you there!
