This project typically involves packing and/or sorting donated food. It also can include packing for CAFB programs, and assisting with various other tasks at the foodbank. All of these tasks are considered light/medium labor and typically involves standing up for up to three hours and lifting up to 35 pounds. This activity will take place in either our Food donations Room or Repack Room and the temperatures can fluctuate, so please dress for the weather and wear closed-toe shoes.
This project is Metro accesible via the Brookland Metro station on the Red Line. A CAFB shuttle van will pick up volunteers from the Brookland/CUA Metro Station at 8:45am for the 9am-12pm shift. There will be no shuttle for evening volunteer shifts. The shuttle van will be near the elevator on the 10th street side of the Metro station and will have a Capital Area Food Bank sign in the front window.
