Is This the Right Fit for Me?
You love to say “Hello!” with a smile and are not too shy to remind members to check-in before they start shopping. You’re comfortable navigating a computer system and answering any basic questions about a member’s account. You don’t mind keeping yourself busy with any side projects nearby, such as refilling the produce stands or organizing an endcap.
About Community Food Club
The Community Food Club of Greater Grand Rapids is an innovative and dignified approach to food security that is rooted in consumer choice, member participation and access to healthy foods. It is a membership-based, grocery store environment in which Members access various educational sessions relating to food and health, and shop with points determined by household size. The Food Club offers an opportunity and a place for low and moderate income households to increase their food security and to improve their healthy eating by accessing nutritious food on a consistent basis. It allows member households to experience increased self-reliance and respect. They belong to the Food Club and they choose whether and when to participate.
What Others are Saying
“I'm passionate about healthy food security, and it's easy to volunteer at the Food Club. A highlight for me is listening to people's stories. It's been a challenge to learn another computer system to check people in and out, but families are very patient with my computer and visual struggles and are very willing to give solutions and suggestions. Staff is always available to help me learn. It really is a delightful environment.”Pat
