Opportunity Details

Hunger & Homelessness

Age Minimum (with Adult): 12+, Minimum Age:18+

Cold Food Sorting


Volunteers assist with sorting and packing frozen perishable donated food that will enable Second Harvest to provide millions of protein-rich meals each month to our hungry neighbors in middle and west Tennessee. Though the shift typically takes place in a cooler, projects are always subject to change based on current organizational needs.
 
Each volunteer shift begins with a brief orientation about Second Harvest and project-specific training. Volunteers will spend the last 30 minutes of each shift cleaning the volunteer workspace, learning the impact of their hard work and receiving a tour of the facility if desired. Please plan on staying for the entire shift.
 
Due to safety concerns, all volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes (no sandals or flip flops) and clothes appropriate to work in a warehouse environment.  It is also recommended to bring a sweatshirt and long pants to work in the 40 degree cooler.
 
Volunteers under the age of 18 MUST have the Youth Volunteer Application signed by a parent or legal guardian.
