How do I become a volunteer?
During COVID-19, we limit participation to known volunteers who have been screened.
To become a volunteer. we ask you to first complete a volunteer packet and return the signed forms by email or turn in a printed copy at the church office. Please click here to download a volunteer packet with COVID-19 Response information and forms to complete and sign.
After we receive your packet, we will add you to our email list so that you can schedule your volunteer times, using SignUp Genius. Each week you will receive an invitation to sign up for volunteer opportunities.
As a partner agency of the Santa Fe Food Depot, we follow the New Mexico TEFAP Program Standards and Requirements (The Emergency Food Assistance Program). All volunteers must take a Food-Safety Training each year. Volunteers working directly with clients also take a Civil-Rights Training annually.
