  • Volunteer Recruitment: Almost every food program that works with ACFB is operated by volunteers from the community. This year more clients will be asked to volunteer. The person in charge of volunteer recruitment finds volunteers to assist the food program with tasks such as unloading food  from trucks, stocking shelves with food, preparing tables for distribution. The person who manages  the volunteers keeps their contact information on file and schedules them for specific shifts and tasks.  The volunteer manager also logs volunteer hours and accomplishments so that the food program remains aware of volunteer contributions. ACFB offers a quarterly seminar for volunteer training.

If clients have other needs that are not directly related to food, then the Client Service Coordinator should do his/her best to refer them to the appropriate resource.
