Volunteering at FISH

Coronavirus/ Covid-19 Update:  Volunteers, please read the flyer with additional details.  The Oregon Health Authority reminds everyone to:

·      Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

·      Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

·      If you are sick (including volunteers), stay home to avoid spreading germs

·      Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing/sneezing



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.​

The current duty roster is here!

Civil Rights Training

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 and then complete the form, available from Billie Stevens (volunteer coordinator).

Food Safety

We take food safety seriously at FISH. All volunteers should review the food safety video carefully.  After watching it, take the quiz, and then let Billie Stevens (volunteer coordinator) know you've done the training so she can record your participation.

Seguridad Alimentaria: Español

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.

This volunteer brochure will help guide you through the expectations that FISH and the Oregon Food Bank have involving the treatment of all clients and volunteers with respect and dignity.  Please read it.

Volunteer Newsletter

Billie's December newsletter is here.  Thank you to all the volunteers who worked to make the holidays special for our FISH clients.
