While Foodlink’s traditional volunteering opportunities are suspended due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we have partnered with the United Way of Greater Rochester to recruit healthy volunteers for specific opportunities — all while carefully considering the health and well-being of our staff, and the community.
Volunteers can use the United Way’s online portal to sign up for various shifts. Currently, we are recruiting volunteers to pack Emergency Food Supply Boxes at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. If you’re willing and able, please consider signing up for a shift: >> Morning shifts (9a-Noon) >> Afternoon shifts (1-4p)
We are also recruiting small groups of volunteers to sort donated food at Foodlink’s Distribution Center. Those shifts are linked below. >> Morning shifts (9a-Noon) >> Afternoon shifts (1-4p)
If there are no shifts available, or if they are filled, you can sign up for the Foodlink Waiting List, and we will alert you about new opportunities, as needed. >> Foodlink Volunteer Waiting List
If you have any questions about this change please reach out to the Volunteer Programs Coordinator, Jessica Lockett, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 585-413-4094.
As always, thank you for your continued volunteer support and stay safe.
