Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry is hiring part-time bilingual staff to register pantry visitors.

Registration Specialists register pantry visitors at their cars using laptops in Loaves & Fishes’ parking lot.

Job Duties:

  • Upon arrival, check that all supplies needed for the shift are ready, including intake forms, pens, highlighters, etc. and that the laptops are charged, powered on, connected to Wi-Fi and Link2Feed, and securely strapped to the laptop harness desks.
  • Check in with warehouse staff to review and familiarize yourself with the food and specialty items available for that distribution.
  • Greet visitors with a pleasant attitude and introduce yourself. Be as discreet as possible when asking for their personal, confidential information. Do not discuss visitors’ information with anyone other than another staff member.
  • Collect or review visitor’s information in Link2Feed, fill out an intake form for each household with household size and any special food or other item requests, place form under windshield wiper for parking lot volunteers, and proceed to next car in line.
  • Report to Operations Managers or Executive Director any visitors who have a complaint or whose behavior and actions seem to be affecting other visitors and volunteers.

  • Able to be on your feet, outdoors, wearing a mask, for the duration of a 3-to-4-hour shift.
