Volunteer at the Oregon Food Bank with AFSCME
Posted On: Feb 13, 2013

AFSCME Local 328 is again sponsoring a volunteer night at the Oregon Food Bank. The event will be held Thursday, March 21, from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m. at OFB's Portland Volunteer Action Center, located at 7900 NE 33rd Dr. -- a few blocks north of Columbia Blvd. TriMet route #73 stops directly across from the center. Anyone interested in volunteering should email Theresia Lloyd-Siemer at theresialloyd@gmail.com. (Volunteers should arrive 15 minutes before their shift to sign in and undergo a brief orientation.)

Here are some general guidelines about volunteering at OFB:

  • Tasks involve standing, squatting, lifting and pulling. OFB can accommodate most physical limitations if you notify them ahead of time re: any special needs.
  • For safety reasons, be sure to wear sturdy, closed-toed/-heel shoes. Open-toed/-heel shoes and high heels are not allowed. Volunteers will not be able to participate without proper footwear.
  • Volunteers should dress appropriately. The environment is extremely cool -- layers are recommended.
  • OFB has a zero-tolerance theft policy.
  • The minimum age for volunteering is 6. This requirement is not flexible.
  • Youth release forms are required for any volunteer under 18.
  • No food, beverage, gum or candy may be consumed in the volunteer work areas.
  • Do not attend if you feel sick or have a cough, runny nose, flu-like symptoms, open wounds, or food-borne illness.
