New Volunteer Opportunity: Delivery Drivers Needed in a Digital Effort to Improve Food Pantry Access
Looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity that allows you be a part of a hunger-fighting solution? We are in need of volunteer delivery drivers to deliver food to homes in a digital effort to improve food pantry access.
Visiting a food pantry can be a challenge. The limited hours, the stigma, the difficulty of finding transportation, and some people’s physical disabilities all can make visiting a daunting experience.
To improve food pantry service, the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities has joined MontCo Anti-Hunger Network (MAHN), Advanced Living Communities (parent company of Schwenckfeld Manor, a Lansdale housing site), and the HealthSpark Foundation to connect people to food pantries via the computer. This new hunger-fighting solution mimics online grocery ordering and provides people with the option to order pantry food from a website.
Can you help? We are looking for:
- Delivery drivers who can be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays
- Ability to report to PCRC at 9:30 am
- Make 2-6 food deliveries to homes in the area
- Must have reliable vehicle (using own vehicle)
- Ability to lift 35 lbs (loading and unloading vehicles)
