The Utah AIDS Foundation supports an on-site food pantry. Clients shop once per week. Volunteers visit with clients, help bag groceries, take inventory, and help clients to their cars.
Volunteers must enjoy being around people and having extended interaction with clients. Must have a pleasant demeanor and customer service skills.
The UAF foodbank is open on Wednesdays from 12PM until 6PM and Fridays from 10AM until 2PM. Volunteers should be able to work a weekly shift of two hours within these times.
WHY THIS PROGRAM:
Working in the foodbank gives you the opportunity to interact extensively with clients. This program also gives you experience in dealing with the public and in social services.
