Volunteer Opportunities: Fair Food Network
Healthy food in YOUR community - join the Double Up Food Bucks Volunteer Network! Fair Food Network's Double Up Food Bucks program doubles the value of SNAP (food stamps) benefits spent at participating farmers markets and grocery stores, helping people bring home more fruits and vegetables while supporting local farmers. Double Up is available at participating locations across Michigan, and your volunteer role is essential in spreading the word about the program.
- Grocery Outreach Volunteers talk to shoppers in the produce section of your community grocery store about how Double Up Food Bucks works. This is a seasonal role between Aug. 1 and Nov. 30 of every year. You would be paired with another volunteer and asked to choose a 2-hour time slot on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays.
- Community Outreach Volunteers represent Double Up Food Bucks at community events and present the program to clients, staff and representatives at community organizations. You can do outreach in your local community in shifts spanning one to four hours, and you will be paired with another volunteer.
- Local Coordinator Volunteers support the volunteer network with training, orientation and scheduling. This is an ongoing opportunity to utilize your leadership and organizational skills, addressing health and nutrition in your community. The hours vary, but could be up to 20 hours per month.
