Volunteer Responsibilities
  • Though the mask mandate has been lifted by MDHHS, masks will be available near the door for volunteers who choose to wear masks.
  • Since we work with an at-risk population, if you have been in contact with a COVID-19 positive case within the past 10 days, have fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, loss of smell or taste, or other symptoms of COVID-19, please refrain from volunteering for 10 days regardless of vaccination status. 
  • Anyone who exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 will be politely asked to leave and encouraged to seek guidance from a healthcare professional.
  • Volunteers should wash their hands upon entry and follow good hygiene practices (such as wearing gloves while packing produce, social distancing, and sanitizing hands and workspaces frequently) while at our facility.
  • In the case of possible or confirmed COVID-19 exposure, Manna will follow the current MDHHS guidelines for reporting. 

Individual and Group Volunteering
  • To ensure a rewarding, safe, and enjoyable experience, all individuals and groups are asked to schedule volunteer shifts in advance. Currently, walk-in volunteer opportunities are unavailable. 
  • Please let Manna staff members know your preference and comfort level working with others before you scheduled shift.
  • Currently, groups are limited to 10 individuals, including children, for each work area, and groups working in the repack room are limited to 4 individuals.
