Store Greeter*

WHAT: Store Greeters encourage shoppers to purchase and donate food items. They are stationed at the entrances of select King Soopers stores in Lafayette, Longmont, and Louisville (see map). This is a great opportunity for groups and families, as well as individuals! Parents: to register children ages 15 and under, you must contact our volunteer department directly.

WHEN: Shifts are 2-2.5 hours long, offered between 3:45-8:00 PM on Friday, April 26 and 9:45 AM-6:00 PM on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28.

Food Transporter (New!)

WHAT: Food Transporters load food donations into our trucks and assist with greeting in between. We’re looking for strong volunteers (ages 16+), because this activity requires walking up stairs and lifting bags of canned and other non-perishable food items.

WHEN: Shifts are 2-2.5 hours long, offered between 3:45-8:00 PM on Friday, April 26 and 9:45 AM-6:00 PM on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28.

*If you’d like to reserve store greeter shifts for your corporate or community group, please call our volunteer department at (303) 591-0516. Volunteer sign-up is on a first come, first served basis. We are thrilled to receive such great support from local groups; however, due to the high volume of interest, we cannot guarantee that your desired shift and store location will be available.
