Volunteer Opportunity - CFR Volunteer Food Runner

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on September 4, 2017

Community Food Rescue seeks volunteers 18+ years with a drivers license and vehicle to transport donated food from food businesses to food assistance organizations within Montgomery County. Volunteers sign up for free using Chowmatch, a web-based software and mobile app. to complete their profile. Once their account is active (see below), volunteers will receive emails or texts about available food runs. The first volunteer to claim the run will get it. Food runs can be one time runs or on a regular weekly basis. Volunteers can select runs that fit their schedule. Volunteer Bill says that he loves to see that food isn't going to waste but that it is redirected to people who experience hunger. He enjoys meeting the donors, visiting their businesses and then seeing agencies that assist people in need. Bill likes seeing both sides of the food donation process and that people are very helpful loading and unloading his car.

Volunteers who are 18+years can sign up at www.chowmatch.org/cfr. They complete a short profile and are asked to review written food safety guidelines and take a multiple choice quiz. Once volunteers pass the quiz with 80% or better, their CFR account is active and they will begin to receive food run requests. those who don't pass the quiz are welcome to review the food safety guidelines again and retake the quiz.
