Community Feeding Taskforce Food Helpline
You can help fight hunger! The Community Feeding Taskforce Food Helpline urgently needs Spanish speaking volunteers who can assist with answering calls to the Helpline on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Volunteers will answer calls from those in need of food, redirect callers to a food pantry closest to where they live and arrange home deliveries for shut-ins. Training is provided; however, volunteers will work from home and must have their own computer and Internet access. It’s a flexible schedule and call volume is low enough someone can do this while working from home. Please visit bit.ly/314ZgDn for more information and click on the Respond button to sign up.
