START/END DATE: 9/28/2020 - 3/26/2021
Note: This opportunity is for residents of King County, WA.
Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, food banks and meals sites in our community have stepped up to support low-income families. As a HungerCorps member, you will be assigned to a food bank or meals site, where you’ll use your skills and experience to support critical anti-hunger work. You will prepare and serve meals, pack boxes of food, engage with community members, and conduct grassroots community outreach to get the word out about available resources. As part of a federal program, you will ensure that the policies and procedures are followed, meals are accurately counted and inventoried, and food is prepared safely. You will gain experience working directly with the community and in support of a respected and influential nonprofit. Training will be provided in site management, marketing, family engagement, and data tracking – hard skills that will make your summer work influential!
