About the volunteer shift at the Food Bank:
- Provide email addresses for any companion volunteers during registration. The REFB will send everyone a sign-up link for their site if you haven't registered at REFB before.
- The warehouse is clean and well kept but it is also air conditioned, so you may want a light jacket, vest, or a long sleeved shirt to start. You may warm up working though so dress in layers!
- Wear closed-toed shoes rather than sandals.
- Bring a (full) water bottle with you to have nearby during your work shift, and any snacks you may want.
- Restrooms are available and very nice.
- You will be on your feet for the whole 2-3 hour shift, and need to be able to lift up to 20 pounds on a repetitive basis.
- Parking is available at the front of the building.
About the Barley & Bine Beer Café:
- It's a five minute drive from the warehouse to the café
- Parking is on the street or in a few spaces along the back/sides of the buildings in this industrial park area
- The café is really an open-air bar area, with lots of seating, so it can be drafty and cool. All seating is covered and there are space heaters, but a jacket and probably a hat are recommended to be comfortable since March weather can be very unpredictable!
