DutiesSorting Food: Volunteers and employees sort the food and other items that are provided to us by our partners. They will select the freshest products using the first in, first out method. They must also appropriately dispose of the food that cannot be distributed. Products must be stocked in appropriate categories and designated areas. 
Packing Orders: Receiving orders via our website, volunteers will pack up individual orders by their designated pick-up time. They must ensure that orders are packed up accurately and in a timely manner.  
Driving: We need volunteers to drive to local partner stores to pick up donated food then drive it to our location in downtown Barrie (80 Bradford St Suite 601). The majority of the driving will be completed between the hours of 8:00am and 9:00am daily, with some occasional afternoon pick-ups as well. 
Inventory: Using Shopify, volunteers and employees update the product inventory information. Quantities of items need to be maintained and product photos updated periodically.
