Feeding South Florida requires all volunteers including chaperones to be registered either individually (16 and older) or as a team member (minors or adults). Registering to volunteer as a team is as easy as visiting https://volunteer.feedingsouthflorida.org and creating an individual account as a Team Captain.

1. Go to Login, found at the top right-hand page.

2. Register as a new volunteer.

3. Create your account.

Once your account is created, you can begin to create your team.

4. Go to “My Account”, select “My Teams”

5. Create A New Team as the Team Captain.

6. List your teammates name and their email and or phone number.

7. Once team is completed, go to the calendar, select shift and then select signup with a team, check off the names of the team members who are participating and submit.

All our volunteer shifts are posted under the “Calendar” tab. This is where you can see availability for each shift as well as register your team once your account has been created.

Things to Remember:

The following guidelines are designed to ensure all volunteers have a great (and safe) experience:

> All members of your team must be registered online. If you have problems with the site, please call and I will assist you.

> All volunteers must wear close-toed shoes due to the warehouse setting. Those not wearing close-toed shoes will not be able to volunteer.

> All volunteers must be at least age 12 to volunteer. Volunteers between the ages of 12 and 18 must have a waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian-attached. Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.     Volunteers age 16 and older can create an individual account and volunteer without an adult.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of your shift. If you arrive after orientation, it is difficult to understand the sort process and your role in it.
