The food Rescue program is sustained through volunteered time.
Volunteers pick up donated food from food donors, bring it to the food sorting hub, organize it and then deliver tailored food boxes to multiple recipient organizations. HFR utilizes over 80 hours of donated time each week and has a volunteer team of over 85 people. Constant volunteer recruitment is necessary as volunteer turnover rates are high due to the nomadic character and seasonality of Jackson Hole.
HFR hosts weekly New Volunteer Orientations for potential new volunteers to learn more about opportunities to get involved. Once new volunteers are brought on board they are taken through a thorough training process. Managing volunteers schedules, organizing volunteer social events, covering for volunteers that are sick or unavailable and ensuring the wellbeing of all of the volunteers are other aspects of the Volunteer Management & Recruitment Program.
