The Network Engagement Volunteers work directly with our hunger-relief programs at area food pantries, hot meals and other food distribution sites. This opportunity is great for individuals who are looking for a way to volunteer on a regular basis. Volunteers are specially trained to use PantryTrak (an internet based client-tracking system), complete SNAP application worksheets, and help manage basic food safety while at partner agencies. This program aims to place Foodbank volunteers with our network partners in their own local communities. Volunteers will be scheduled in teams of at least two to visit programs a minimum of twice a month.
