WEP & Court Ordered Community Service
Thank you for your interest in completing your service hours with with us.
The Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank accepts volunteers fulfilling court-mandated community service and WEP program requirements. All individuals must register for Orientation (held every Monday at 8am) prior to scheduling their community service/WEP hours.
- The Food Bank requires that all volunteers disclose the reason for service and, if their service is court-mandated, provide documentation demonstrating the terms of their service. Court-mandated individuals may not complete service hours until this documentation is received in advance. If at any time it is found that documentation is found to be fraudulent, we will not provide any documentation of any hours served.
- The Food Bank will not accept volunteers who have been convicted of violent crimes, crimes of a sexual nature, theft, burglary, drug sales, or identity theft crimes.
- The Food Bank reserves the right to decline any volunteer or to limit which days or hours a volunteer can work.
- Volunteers fulfilling court-mandated community service and WEP hours must report by 8:00am. (If you arrive late you will not be permitted to volunteer on that day.)
- There is a 4-hour minimum (8:00am – 12:00pm) for all volunteers fulfilling court-mandated community service and WEP hours.
- It is not the responsibility of the Food Bank to accommodate court-mandated community service volunteers who wait until the last minute to fulfill their obligation. No exceptions will be made to this policy.
Reminder: Volunteers are required to wear closed-toed shoes with closed-heels (volunteers wearing flip-flops or clogs will not be allowed to participate in any volunteer activities). Comfortable shoes and comfortable work clothes are recommended. Until further notice, volunteers will also be required to wear a face mask at all times while volunteering (both onsite and offsite). Face shields, bandanas, and scarves will not be allowed as substitutes. Disposable face masks will be available as well.
