Connecticut Food Bank seeks volunteers in East Haven

Connecticut Food Bank has two immediate ongoing volunteer opportunities at its East Haven office at 150 Bradley St. If you are interested in any of the following volunteer positions, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Kim Damien at 203-469-5000, ext. 311.

Warehouse Volunteers Needed

One volunteer is needed each day, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to noon; and 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the East Haven warehouse to assist with sorting food donations. This is an ongoing opportunity and not a one-visit situation. The days can be covered by the same volunteer each day or by a different volunteer each day.

BackPack Delivery Assistant

This volunteer is needed to assist with delivering boxes of food to various schools each Thursday morning during the school year. The volunteer will ride with a staff member to participating schools and help unload the boxes and carry them inside. He or she should be able to lift and carry 35-40 pounds while climbing stairs and be available each week. Staff and volunteer will depart from the East Haven warehouse at 7:30 a.m. and return about noon.

If you cannot donate time on an ongoing basis, but would like to help with Connecticut Food Bank’s Thanksgiving food drives or food sorting, visit www.ctfoodbank.org and click on the How to Help tab and Donate Time page for the latest volunteer needs, or call 203-469-5000.

Connecticut Food Bank serves about 600 local emergency food-assistance programs in six of Connecticut's eight counties: Fairfield, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Windham. The agency distributes an average of 33 tons of food every business day. For more information, visit www.ctfoodbank.org.
