Frequently Asked Questions

Does this count towards my required hours for my organization/club/honors society?

Yes, absolutely! We will check you in upon arrival and check you out of our system once you leave. We will then verify your volunteer hours through Campus Groups and then inside your Campus Groups account you can print off your list of completed service hours for your organization.

If you need a signature on anything you can contact the Food Market Manager - Kimberly Wilson (kwilson@uhd.edu)

What if I can't be there for the entire volunteer shift?

Typically if you cannot be there for the entire shift we ask that you leave the spot available for someone else who could.

However, if you only plan on being 10-15 minutes late or leaving early by that much time then that is no problem! Upon your arrival you will just need to let the Food Market student staff know so that they can clock you in/out at the appropriate time.

What will I be doing?

Shipment Events: On shipment days you could help with a variety of things from unloading/moving boxes, stocking shelves, cleaning, or breaking down boxes.

Compost Days: During these events we focus primarily on using electric scissors to cut down cardboard boxes to utilize for composting

Snack Packing: During these events you will help put together snack packs and welcome folders for tabling events

Tabling: For tabling events we ask that you be an experienced volunteer who knows a good amount about the Food Market. You will help us hand out snack packs and flyers to students in different buildings around campus to help get the word out that they can be getting free food.
