**Please review**Regarding COVID-19 and volunteering at the Food Bank CENC
Current volunteer sessions are being capped at smaller numbers and volunteers are spread out at those stations. This is to best accommodate social distancing while still packing vital food resources, in accordance with guidelines around large groups.
Masks are required for all staff and volunteers, regardless of vaccination status. The Food Bank will have masks available at volunteer sessions should you forget to bring yours.
There is personal protection equipment available at the Food Bank, and all volunteers must wear gloves. All surfaces are wiped down and sanitized before and after each volunteer session with wipes that contain at least 60% alcohol.
All volunteers must wash their hands upon entering the Food Bank, before starting a project.
If you are feeling sick, or displaying any symptoms of illness, please stay home.
Impact Statement:Volunteers will sort hundreds of lbs. of food in just one shift!
Parking Info:Please park near the marked Volunteer Entrance located at the northern side of the building (the left hand side when facing the building). If you can see the “Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina” lettering when you are entering, you are on the wrong side of the building. Check-in inside the Food Bank at the desk.
