Join Humanists of Houston as we work another Friday night shift at the Houston Food Bank main warehouse (houstonfoodbank.org). Activities may include packing food boxes, re-packing bulk items, packaging rice or pulling “grocery” orders that local agencies will take to their communities.
Please note that the Houston Food Bank requires you to register individually online, print out their volunteer pass before you arrive, and arrive early to allow for orientation to the warehouse. If you've volunteered at the warehouse before, you can use the same barcode pass or re-print it from the vss... website.
Here is the official message from the Houston Food Bank:
Before you volunteer:
1) Each volunteer must register online prior to their volunteer date. Please follow the link http://vss.houstonfoodbank.org to complete registration. [Detail note: on the registration screen, for "Institution" put "Humanists of Houston"; and for "Group" put "Humanists of Houston-4".]
2) Once registered, you will receive an email to activate your account and will also receive a Volunteer Pass — print this out and bring it with you to your shift.
3) All minor volunteers, age 17 and younger, must have parents complete the attached waiver and bring to their volunteer shift.
4) Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers must be at least 8 years of age.
Dress Code: Tennis shoes, jeans and t-shirt. No shorts or open-toed shoes are allowed for safety reasons.
Please do NOT bring personal items [bags or purses]. Carpooling is encouraged!
Finally, please wear your HOH t-shirt if you've got one! I usually have a few with me for sale ($10), or visit our corner of Cafe Press, http://www.cafepress.com/hohshop.
