Food Runners

When volunteer Food Runners register, they can choose the distance, time of day, vehicle capacity, and other variables.  They will only receive notification of deliveries that meet their criteria.  Food Runners will also receive a record of miles driven for tax purposes, and volunteer hours for students that have community service requirements at their college.  Magic City Harvest receives a report that allows us to measure our progress.  Additional phone app features will provide food safety training and background check registration.

Magic City Harvest Food Share will depend on volunteer Food Runners to be successful.  You can volunteer as an individual, family, or company group.  A pickup and dropoff will typically require one hour to complete.  You can volunteer for a regular weekly, biweekly, or on call food run.  Training sessions will be provided before Food Share begins operating later this fall.  Volunteer Food Runners will receive training in basic food handling safety, complete a criminal background check, and receive badging and a thermal blanket in order to safely serve in this important volunteer role.

Magic City Harvest needs help getting everything ready for the expected launch in November.  Please contact David Arias at 205-757-1533 or david@magicityharvest.org if you know of someone interested in volunteering.
