Senior Food Box Distribution
** Staff is doing these distributions so senior box volunteer opportunities are suspended until further notice, in compliance with CDC recommendations. Please consider volunteering for our emergency warehouse shifts instead. We are taking every precaution to keep our volunteers safe and healthy in our warehouses. The need for emergency food boxes is very high in Middle Tennessee, and we can’t help these vulnerable people without our dedicated volunteers! **
Monday through Friday, shift times vary
Help us distribute food boxes to hungry seniors in Davidson County!
Food boxes are distributed in the lobbies of senior living towers, or to the participant’s apartment door. Volunteers are needed to assist a Second Harvest staff member with the following tasks: client interaction, loading/unloading food boxes, delivering food boxes, and obtaining signatures.
These food boxes are provided through the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), which works to improve the health of low-income seniors by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA foods. CSFP is a federally funded program that Second Harvest manages for Davidson County.
The food distribution takes place indoors.
• Closed-toe shoes are required for all volunteers’ safety. No exceptions.
• Wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting a little dirty. You’ll be standing/walking the entire shift.
Volunteers must be able to lift 30 lbs and enjoy interacting with seniors.
Please review our Volunteer Policies and Procedures.
This project is not eligible for Court Appointed or Tennessee Promise community service hours.
