Inclement Weather Plan for Sunday Distributions at Family Table Waltham

Volunteer Drivers

If you are a Family Table volunteer driver, you will not be packing outside; rather, you can expect a curbside pick-up at our Sunday distributions from November – February, or whenever the weather prevents us from operating outdoors. Since we can only allow a small number of people into our building at a time, this plan will enable us to pack all the grocery bags for our clients in a socially distanced manner.

  • Volunteer drivers arrive at our Waltham headquarters during selected shift. There will be five shifts to accommodate the new procedures.
  • Drivers will be directed to pull around the back of the building and stop their car at the back door.
  • The driver will open their trunk and workers (staff or other volunteers) will load produce and cold items for all pre-assigned clients into the car.
  • Driver will be directed to an assigned parking space on the east side of the building.
  • The driver will wait in their assigned spot while workers inside the building pack the groceries for the driver’s assigned clients. This should take between 10 - 20 minutes depending on how many clients have been assigned to the driver.
  • When the bags are packed, a worker will bring the groceries to the driver, load them into the trunk/car, and give the driver the shopping lists, which note the addresses for delivery. Driver will then leave to make deliveries.
