Limitations and Background
By initialing above I understand that due to the vulnerable populations that Jeremiah's Inn works with all Food Pantry volunteers must pass a CORI background check.
Volunteers for Jeremiah's Inn are requested to arrive dressed appropriately for the work that they will be performing. This dress code has been developed with the safety of volunteers in mind, following work place safety standards and are designed to respect our clients. Please adhere to this code to insure that you will be able to fully take part during your day(s) of service. Volunteers arriving dressed inappropriately will not be allowed to take part unless suitable accommodations can be made. Volunteers must wear flat, closed-toed shoes. Please do not wear shoes with heels more than half an inch. Volunteers should not wear revealing or tight-fitting clothing. Do not wear tank tops, sleeveless or low-cut shirts, short-shorts or tight pants (including yoga pants, leggings, or tights). Acceptable clothing includes shirts that cover the stomach, and upper arms and chest, shorts that come within three inches of the knees, and long pants. A hat or hairnet is required for volunteers handling food. Hats should be brought from home (we suggest baseball caps) Please do not wear large /dress hats. Disposable gloves are required for volunteers handling food and will be provided by Jeremiah's Inn.
