Pajaro Valley Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry Support

VOLUNTEERS: Please fill out our volunteer form at our website pvloavesandfishes.org/volunteer.htm

As a community-supported kitchen and pantry, our mission is to assist the people of the Pajaro Valley with nutritious food, education, and referrals in cooperation with other agencies. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have increased our need for regular volunteers, as many of our former helpers are now sheltering-in-place, while we have simultaneously seen an increase in our community's need for support in getting a healthy meal, as many are experiencing changes in their employment and housing statuses. In this time of increased need, we are looking for help working in our pantry program, serving clients and restocking items . We need two people per shift, Monday-Friday, from 9am-3pm, as the pantry opens 9-11:30am and again 1-3pm. To help with restocking and receiving deliveries, we recommend you be comfortable lifting up to 50 pounds. If you would like to serve clients directly, it is required that you be comfortable communicating in both English and Spanish.

****To keep everyone safe, we ask that you please bring your own mask to volunteer and to wear it all times while volunteering. Daily temperature checks for volunteers will also be administered upon arrival.

If you are available, we so look forward to having you! If you don't want to volunteer alone, please feel free to invite a friend to come along!

We have been so thankful for the support we have received from our community in the form of volunteer hours and food donations during this difficult time; we always appreciate bringing another member into our PVLF family, and are especially grateful now for your time!

Como cocina y despensa apoyada por la comunidad, nuestra misión es ayudar a la gente del Pajaro Valley con alimentos nutritivos, educación y referencias en cooperación con otras agencias. Debido a la pandemia de COVID-19 en curso, hemos aumentado nuestra necesidad de voluntarios regulares, ya que muchos de nuestros antiguos ayudantes ahora se están refugiando en el lugar, mientras que simultáneamente hemos visto un aumento en la necesidad de apoyo de nuestra comunidad para obtener una comida saludable ya que muchos están experimentando cambios en su situación laboral y de vivienda.

En este momento de mayor necesidad, estamos buscando ayuda para trabajar en nuestro programa de despensa, atender a los clientes y reabastecer artículos. Necesitamos dos personas por turno, de lunes a viernes, de 9 a. M. A 3 p. M., Ya que la despensa abre de 9 a 11:30 a. M. Y nuevamente de 1 a 3 p. M. Para ayudar con la reposición de existencias y la recepción de entregas, le recomendamos que se sienta cómodo levantando hasta 50 libras. Si desea atender a los clientes directamente, es necesario que se sienta cómodo comunicándose tanto en inglés como en español.

Para mantener a todos a salvo, le pedimos que traiga su propia máscara para ser voluntario y que la use todo el tiempo mientras trabaja como voluntario. Los controles diarios de temperatura para los voluntarios también se administrarán a su llegada.

Si está disponible, ¡esperamos contar con su presencia! Si no desea ser voluntario solo, ¡no dude en invitar a un amigo a que lo acompañe!

Estamos muy agradecidos por el apoyo que hemos recibido de nuestra comunidad en forma de horas de voluntariado y donaciones de alimentos durante este momento difícil; ¡Siempre apreciamos traer a otro miembro a nuestra familia PVLF, y estamos especialmente agradecidos ahora por su tiempo!
