Volunteer Guidelines

The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank does not deny anyone the opportunity to perform volunteer service on the basis of race, creed, color, gender, national origin or religion.  Everyone’s time and efforts are greatly appreciated! Please read the volunteer guidelines below:

Volunteers are requested to record their hours of service. Keeping track of volunteer participation documents community support and helps the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank when applying for grants, corporate and foundation funding.

The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank is open between the hours of 9:00AM – 5:00PM, Monday through Friday.

We ask that volunteers perform tasks in a professional, courteous manner and quality equal to that expected of regular KPFB staff.

Respect for the confidentiality of Kenai Peninsula Food Bank agencies, individual clients, Community Work Service workers, volunteers and staff is of great importance.

As a matter of safety, volunteers must dress appropriately for warehouse work. (No open toed or high heeled shoes, short skirts or dresses, shorts, low cut shirts or blouses or bare midriff apparel.)

Volunteers performing work for the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank are NOT covered by workman’s compensation or any other Kenai Peninsula Food Bank insurance.
