Current Volunteer Opportunities
As seasons change, so do our volunteer needs. Here is what we’re currently looking for.
Veggie Mobile/Sprout Stops
Capital Roots’ Veggie Mobile is a farm stand on wheels that travels throughout Albany, Rensselaer and Schenectady counties. The main task of the volunteer on the Veggie Mobile is to take produce orders from customers. Our staff members will work alongside volunteers participating in packing produce and payment transactions.
Squash Hunger Deliveries
Capital Root’s Squash Hunger program is a food donation initiative that collects and distributes fresh produce to our region’s food pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens. The main task of the volunteer is to pick up produce at or our donation collections sites located in Albany, Troy, Delmar, and Schenectady to deliver to emergency food providers on one of our various routes.
Mailing and Clerical work
We are looking for volunteers to help us stuff vital end of year campaign mailers. This mail helps to get our message out to the community – highlighting our work and how essential every donor is to the success of our mission. This is opportunity can also be done at home! We will prepare mailing materials and you can return them upon completion.
