 1.Please plan to arrive no sooner than 10 minutes before and no later than 10 minutes after your scheduled sorting shift time. In order to keep the warehouse and volunteers secure,Second Harvest Food Bank is unable to accommodate late arrivals.)

2. All volunteers must bring completed and signed forms with them to the Food Bank (form attached). The dress code at the Food Bank is casual and comfortable. No shorts and no tank tops are permitted. Closed toe shoes and long pants are required. Please leave all valuables in the trunk of your cars. No purses or backpacks.
