Friendly Staff, Busy days, customers in and out all day.
Volunteer (Former Employee), Montrose, COJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: free lunches, breaks when things slow down.
Cons: it is voluntary so, you do not get paid in cash but in experience.
We would usually start our days off by meeting up around 7:00 am and would start by cleaning and sanitizing work areas, then we would stock the shelves, freezers, fridges, etc. We would get split up into groups; Dairy, Meat, Produce, and Bagging, Bookkeeping, Record Keeping, Classifying and Sorting Stock, Assistance. Those in assistance would walk the grocery carts to the customers car and load it for them if they were unable.
The co-workers were mostly friendly and we would switch groups so that everyone would get to know others in other departments, and to gain skills in different areas.
The hardest part of the job was working together to be on time and get food into customers cars to make room for the growing numbers of others.
The best part was at the end of the day when everyone started cleaning and putting things away we would circle up and talk amongst the managers and co-workers like a family.

Volunteer Program
Stock Volunteer (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJuly 10, 2013
Pros: moral gratification, social involvement, giving back.
Cons: short brakes and no health care.
Its simple you log on online pick a time and date, show up, most of the time we were repackaging from large amounts to smaller personal amounts which would then be distributed to the needy in numerous locations. I learned about team effort, collaboration, and working hard to complete the task at hand. Management had a small meeting before we started and explained how thing need to be done, at the end of the session another meeting to let us know we were appreciated and thanked for our volunteer service. My co-workers were other young and older adults from different backgrounds but over all very hard working individuals. Hardest part of the job was lack of equipment such as durable gloves, etc. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that the work i have done will make someone else's life a little easier.

Cons: people stealing
I learned how to help people from all walks of life. The volunteers were just some of the sweetest most helpful people. Management sadly could have been a little better with managing. Hardest part of the job had to be unloading palettes of food all day long

Costumer Service/Volunteering
Volunteer (Former Employee), Yuma, AZJuly 3, 2013
Pros: it was good for a beginers costumer service job.
Cons: i had short breaks, but i didn't really mind.
A typical day volunteering at the Yuma Food Bank was taking costumers orders that were handed to us on paper. Once we knew how much food to give to that specific costumer we would go around the building with a box in a shopping cart and put in the amount of food that we were told to in the order we were given. One by one we would fill up a box with a specific amount of food. Then after we would meet up with the costumer we were attending and would hand their order over to them. This process would repeat with a new costumers order at a time. The hardest part of the job was when costumers wanted more food than what their order said to give. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I helped a lot with the hours I put in volunteering at the Yuma Food Bank. The best part of volunteering in costumer service is learning how to be a hard worker.

Volunteering to help the community
Volunteer (Former Employee), Mount Morris, MIJune 29, 2013
Pros: smiles on kids faces, fun, free food, meeting new people.
Cons: boxes ripping.
Volunteering at the food bank is more than an experience, it's a step in life. Seeing how those people were touched me in a different way, and doing that helped me help myself and others. Also it gave me experience in lifting heavy equipment, organizing different types of items in groups, and greeting people with more than smiles.
