Sort and Serve at the Cleveland Food Bank

 



HandsOn volunteers help sort and repack donated and purchased food that is later distributed to local food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters. Volunteers primarily work sorting donated mixed perishable items and packaged meat from the cooler room. Modifications to the project may be made to accommodate volunteers with limited mobility.  

Please bring a sweater or other warm clothing items with you just in case -  you may be asked to work in the cooler room.

The mission of the Greater Cleveland Foodbank is to alleviate hunger by providing food and support to community organizations that feed the hungry.

Age Limits: This project is for volunteers age 12 and up. Volunteers under the age of 16 must serve alongside a parent or guardian. All volunteers under 18 must fill out and bring a
youth waiver form signed by a parent or legal guardian.

Things to remember: Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes and if possible leave valuables in your vehicle. Gloves and jackets are provided if we work in the cooler area, but bring a sweater or other warm clothing items for an extra layer of warmth. This project may require heavy lifting.

Where to Meet Your Leader: 
Meet in the main lobby of the Food Bank.

If you would like to bring a non-oriented volunteer (youth volunteers under the age of 16 or a friend/family member) please email the Opportunity Leader to request permission and reserve a guest spot.

Special Driving Instructions: Coming off the highway, the Foodbank is in the 2nd building (white) on right after E. 152nd St. light. Parking is available in the lot out front.
