Agency Shopping Floor Assistance

Next date is Friday, October 7th, 2022 from 10:00am to 12:00pm (ET)


The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia relies heavily on community partnered organizations (partner agencies) to distribute food. The Agency Shopping floor provides the opportunity for partner agencies to select specific product and foods to meet clients' needs from donations that have passed quality insurance and food-safety checks. During this event, volunteers will assist the Agency Shopping floor and Volunteer Department managers in whatever areas needed to provide an excellent Agency Shopping experience for our partner agencies. 

Volunteers can expect to complete a variety of tasks including: 

  • Stocking shelves
  • Sorting donations 
  • Sorting and stocking produce
  • Stocking frozen meats
  • Recycling cardboard
  • Cleaning duties (dusting, sweeping, mopping)

Participants should expect to stand for the duration of the event and should be comfortable lifting up to 30lbs or more.

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

First-time volunteers should always review our Volunteer Page to review any updates and Covid-19 regulations, as well as to read through our Volunteer Handbook, which covers instructions for events, dress code, programs, and submit our New Volunteer Survey. This event is not open to minors (ages 16 and younger) at this time.
