Community Food Education (CFE) seeks Volunteer Drivers to pick up produce from Charlie’s Produce in SODO and deliver it to Lowell Elementary School (Capitol Hill)
About Community Food Education (CFE)
CFE supports the health and well-being of communities experiencing poverty. We educate kids and adults about growing, buying, cooking, and eating nutritious foods. To further support this, we help make local, institutional changes that support the health of communities we work with, and center food as a tool to build community and work towards social justice.
- Pick up groceries up from Charlie’s Produce in SODO.
- Check to make sure the order is correct.
- Deliver the produce to Lowell Elementary School.
- Ensure that produce is properly stored.
- Communicate with CFE staff to schedule and confirm delivery time each week.
All volunteers are provided with orientation to program and training with CFE staff, and additional resources are available as needed.
Solid Ground prioritizes safety of our volunteers and program participants and is following guidance from King County Public Health regarding safety measures. The volunteer is required to wear face coverings during the duration of their volunteer shift, and Solid Ground can provide masks as needed. We will also provide hand sanitizer and gloves as needed for volunteers to use during their shift.
Volunteer and Solid Ground staff will be in consistent communication. Volunteer safety protocols can be adjusted due to new information about the virus or new recommendations or restrictions from Public Health. Volunteer will inform staff supervisor promptly if they test positive for, are diagnosed with, or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 and will stay home from their shift.
