Pack Out Manager
+BOX is looking for volunteer Pack Out Managers to lead +BOX Pack Out events. We have expanded the program to include four new school distribution partners for the 2022-23 school year and need volunteer support to build capacity and meet the demand in our community.
+BOX is a school-based, nutrition focused food security program that makes it easier for children and families to consistently access healthy whole foods. +BOX is designed to minimize barriers to nutritious foods by partnering with local growers, food rescuers, and neighborhood schools to distribute boxes of fresh, healthy, nutrient rich foods on a weekly basis. Every +BOX includes enough nutritious food for families to create up to ten healthy, culturally relevant, meals. This school year, +BOX will support between 550 and 650 food insecure families every week in North County school communities.
The +BOX Pack Out Manager will lead our weekly volunteer Pack Out events. Pack Outs bring together a team of volunteers to assemble and pack up boxes with healthy whole foods for food insecure students and families in our community. Pack Outs take place four times per week on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. The +BOX Pack Out Manager will lead the event, provide direction to volunteers, ensure that volunteers are effectively packing, sealing, and loading boxes, then clean up and lock up. You also get to choose the playlist!

Arrive at the +BOX Warehouse in Carlsbad by 3:30pm for your designated Pack Out shift
Welcome volunteers and ensure they sign in
Provide volunteers with instructions for participating in the Pack Out
