Share Your Holidays Phone Bank volunteers register clients by phone to receive holiday food boxes from the Houston Food Bank. In performing these duties, volunteers help tens of thousands of people access the food they need over the holidays.
Volunteers work alongside Houston Food Bank Staff to receive incoming phone calls from the community in need of food support. Volunteers receive an average of 50 calls per shift. Volunteers will capture pertinent information from clients and enter it into a database. A standard script will be provided and volunteers will be trained on the database software upon arrival.
No volunteer will be asked to receive phone calls until they are fully comfortable with their duties.
