Mobile Food Market

We Don’t Waste is kicking off a new initiative to help us reach areas of the community that we’re not currently serving. That’s where the Mobile Food Market comes in to fill the gap. We’ll be partnering with existing nonprofits to set up a no-cost mobile market—and we need your help!
Mobile Food Market Volunteers help We Don’t Waste to reach further into the community by helping set up the market, serve shoppers, and break down at the end of the shift. This position is essential to providing nutritious food to the community and ensuring that shopper intake, shopping, and cleanup go smoothly.

Key Responsibilities:
  • Setting up tables, restocking them with food from pallets as needed
  • Checking in shoppers and completing intake forms
  • Assisting shoppers with food selection, helping the market move smoothly
  • Helping with check-out, carrying groceries as needed
Qualifications: Patience, flexibility, problem-solving ability, must be 16 years of age or older, able to lift 20 - 40 pounds. Bilingual Spanish a plus.
We ask that volunteers remember that asking for help can be hard to do. We rely on volunteers to ensure our Mobile Food Market is a welcoming, respectful place for shoppers to receive the nutritious food they need.
Time Commitment: 4 hours
