VOLUNTEER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

We are ecstatic that you are thinking about volunteering at Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Here you will find the answers to some of the most common questions we receive.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY VOLUNTEER SHIFT?

No open-toed shoes (e.g. NO sandals, flip flops, or open-toed high heels) Comfortable clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Because of the continuous lifting and repacking, we also recommend not wearing loose jewelry like rings, watches or necklaces. You may also want to wear layers – depending on the project you’ll be assigned to, temperature in the building and warehouse can vary.

HOW DO I SIGN UP MY ENTIRE GROUP ON VOLUNTEERHUB?

You can register on VolunteerHub for an account with your contact information. Then, find a shift on the schedule that works for your team. Sign up for one slot for that shift, then contact the Volunteer Department to reserve additional slots.

DO I NEED TO SIGN UP FOR A VOLUNTEER SHIFT IN ADVANCE OR MAY I JUST SHOW UP?

All projects must be scheduled in advance to plan for staffing and materials needed. Once you are scheduled, you will receive a confirmation e-mail immediately as well as a reminder e-mail (as long as you provide an email address) shortly before your shift. If you do not have an e-mail account, please contact our Volunteer Department to get full details.
