You Make a Difference Every Day!
Volunteering at FISH
-->The state mask mandate ended on March 12, 2022. See the volunteer coordinator or operations director when you arrive if you need one of these masks.
--> Do not come to work if you are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms.
WASH or SANITIZE your hands upon entering the food bank and as needed while working there.
FISH requires volunteers who are working with clients to wear masks if 6' distancing cannot be maintained. That means if you are within 6' of a client to pass them groceries, confirm information, or ask questions, you must wear a mask: See the Oregon Food Bank's policy statement here.
Thank you for helping out! Whether it's unloading trucks, sorting produce, helping clients shop, or stocking shelves, we couldn't help so many families without your efforts and dedication.
Civil Rights Training 2022
Each year volunteers need to review Civil Rights training to remind us all of how we treat the clients who visit us for food aid.
Please watch the video, review the flyer on Volunteer Responsibilities, and then complete the form. If you're unable to access the on-line form, contact Billie Stevens to let her know you completed the training.
We take food safety seriously at FISH.
All volunteers who have been instructed by Billie Stevens that they need this training should review the food safety video carefully. After watching it, take the quiz, and then let Billie know you've done the training so she can record your participation.
The FoodKeeper helps you understand food and beverages storage. It will help you maximize the freshness and quality of items. By doing so you will be able to keep items fresh longer than if they were not stored properly. It was developed by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service, with Cornell University and the Food Marketing Institute. It is also available as a mobile application for Android and Apple devices.
In accordance with federal civil rights law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), disability, age, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity.
