The Client Greeter welcomes all visitors to the pantry with a smiling face and helpful heart. The person in this position ensures clients are served in the order of their arrival, assists with client questions and concerns, and helps other volunteers when needed.
Pantry guests receive food assistance only if they meet certain criteria. Client Interviewers enroll new guests in the Mid-Ohio Food Bank’s “Pantry Trak” system and help previous pantry visitors keep their information up to date. Required skills: some computer experience necessary (database training will be provided).
In order to distribute food as fairly as possible, the number and amount of items is distributed on the basis of family size. The Personal Shopper explains the choice system and helps guests shop for their favorite items. Required skills: willingness to work closely with clients and suggest food choices that will best meet their needs. Great job for foodies!
NNEMAP Food Pantry gets the majority of its food supply from Mid-Ohio Food Bank. We rely on volunteers to go to the Food Bank every morning to keep an adequate supply available for clients. Hours are available every day. “Substitute drivers” are always welcome, too! Required skills: some heavy lifting required; cell phone needed; larger vehicle like SUV or pickup truck helpful.
On an average day, NNEMAP gives away a 3-day supply of food for about 250 people. The Stockroom/Inventory Assistant makes sure food is available for guests, accepts deliveries and donations, and helps manage cardboard recycling and trash removal. Required skills: some heavy lifting may be required.
