Foodshare Call for Volunteers

Foodshare Call for Volunteers

FoodShare has an immediate need for Volunteers!  Each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in September we could use up to 30 volunteers at Foodshare’s Drive-Thru Food Distribution at Rentschler Field, East Hartford. With many summer volunteers going back to school and others now working we need your help in recruiting more volunteers.

At Rentschler, the volunteer’s day begins at 8:00 am and goes through 12:30 pm.  Social distancing will be enforced. Every volunteer will be expected to wear a mask, and wear sturdy, comfortable closed-toe shoes. Gloves will be provided.   Don’t forget your sun screen lotion!  As an additional screening tool, volunteers’ temperatures will be taken on site.   Children ages 12-15 must volunteer with an adult/guardian; ages 16 and over can come on their own. Must be able to lift 20 pounds consistently during the 4.5 hour shift.  Water and break times are provided.
