Please remember that the pick-up site in Sunnyside is entirely run by volunteers. There are no paid people here! That means to keep the season and pick-ups running smoothly, every member needs to contribute through the volunteer hours they agreed to in the membership contract.

Vegetable and Fruit Shifts
Click the links on each shift for complete instructions.
3:00-4:00, Meet The Truck– THIS SHIFT INVOLVES MANUAL LABOR. You will be meeting the farm delivery truck and bringing the boxes inside (you may get dirty). This shift is the shortest, but most needed. You can take your share home when you’re done.
6:15-8:15, Closing Vegetable Distribution – Manage the second half of distribution, and clean up. This shift may involve very light manual labor putting things away.
Special Share Shifts
Lewis Waite shifts are similar to the fruit and vegetable, but you’ll need to sort individual groceries to ensure members get their complete order. This includes fish shares, when applicable.
The Beer and Kombucha shifts need volunteers to count growlers and ensure each member leaves with their share.
CSA Events & Extras
We always need additional volunteers for other CSA events or fundraisers, and may send volunteer emails as opportunities arise.
You can also fulfill your volunteer requirement by contributing in other ways: grant writing, offering items for fundraisers, or joining the core group. If you have other skills or ideas you’d like to share, please contact us. We’re open to all suggestions–this CSA is entirely volunteer organized and run!
