6:15-8:15 Volunteer Shift Instructions

6:15-8:15 Volunteer Shift

The final shift of the night involves pickup orders, final cleanup and storage duties. There may be light manual labor.

Please be on time to allow the previous shift volunteers to leave on time.

Arrive at 6:15

The previous volunteers will let you know if there is any CSA news to share with members when they pick up their orders.

Remember to initial by your name in the volunteer section on the top of the veggie pickup list. If you are in charge of Lewis Waite items, read here for instructions.

Continue distribution

For members splitting a share, check off the share when the first member arrives. If they only pick up half they need to mark the remainder with the name of their partner. Members who split are solely responsible for ensuring their partner gets an equal share.

If there is a soap share leave it at your table to hand out.

If you are collecting money for fundraisers and raffles, keep an envelope clearly marked. For raffles, tickets are stored in the basement with the other supplies.

Make sure empty boxes are folded and stacked on the hand truck.

Keep the floor clean of scraps using the brooms and dustpans nearby.

You can begin calling/reminding members at 7:00 who haven’t picked up shares yet.

Begin cleanup at 7:30

Sweep the floor, and clean tables & chairs of all food scraps. If you cannot find a broom, cleaning spray and paper towels, ask the janitor or security guard.

Record any issues/notes from your shift at the bottom of the appropriate pickup list.

Fold the tarp.

Break down the plastic fruit bins and stack flat.

Clean the knife and cutting board in the bathroom, then place back in the CSA tote.

The site coordinator should be there towards the end of the night to help clean up and review any issues.

Distribution is over at 8:00

List names of any unclaimed shares at the end of the pickup list. (Late members can pick up at your discretion.)

Unclaimed shares can be left in the corner near the double doors by the service entrance for SCS to take.

The  pickup lists, CSA signs and other materials go into the accordion folder, then inside the CSA tote.

Take the CSA’s materials to the basement. Keep the following stacked on the hand truck for next time:

  • Stacks of vegetable boxes & fruit bins
  • Blue tarp
  • The CSA tote of supplies

If necessary, there is a second, smaller black hand truck in the basement to help transport items. The site coordinator, security guard, or janitor can help call the elevator if needed.

If there is a major problem, call the site coordinator at any point. The number is on the top of every pickup list. Thank you for volunteering, we couldn’t do it without you!
