As a community-owned grocery store, we have made a conscious choice to involve our community in a great many ways, including volunteerism. With your help, we can do more to make our community a better place.
How Do I Become a Volunteer at People's?
There are a few easy steps to becoming a volunteer:
- To volunteer with the store you need to be a PFC owner (due to legal issues with our Cooperative status).
- Pick up or download a volunteer application, fill it out, and bring it into the store.
- Sign up for one of our monthly volunteer orientations. You can call the store or email our Volunteer Coordinator for dates and times or to RSVP.
- Attend one of the one hour monthly volunteer orientations at the store. We’ll talk about volunteer opportunities, take a tour of the store, and answer any questions you might have. You’ll also be able to sign up to help right then and there!
A Few of Our Current Volunteer Opportunities
Interested in lending a hand? There are a lot of ways you can help. Here are a few examples of volunteer opportunities at the store:
- Wednesdays (2pm for set up, 7pm for tear down): Additional help needed setting up and tearing down at the 100-Mile Market
- Tuesday evenings: Help the produce department by tagging boxes, bagging sprouts, and other assorted produce jobs
- Every day between 10am and noon: Help the deli crew by washing dishes
- Tuesday and Friday mornings: Help the grocery team out by stocking shelves
- Every day, mornings or afternoons: Help keep prices accurate by performing price checks on individual items
For more information or to sign up for a shift, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
Board of Director Volunteer Opportunities
Our board members are some of our most committed volunteers, as they have taken on oversight and governance of the organization. If you are interested in becoming a board member, we’d love to have you join us for a board meeting on the 4th Tuesday of the month. For more information, please visit Your Board of Directors page or contact our Board Chair, Matt Lechel.
