This is a healthy workout for mind and body. Every Friday morning at the downtown
Sarasota location, a few Green Door members help to unload, divide and distribute
the food between the members baskets.
This involves lifting, bending and stretching, and lots of counting. We start fairly
early to get the baskets ready for everyone and so as not to take up your whole day.
Like interacting with people? Each location has a Green Door Greeter to help
members sign in, get their correct basket, answer questions, and help members
manage their accounts. This would be on Fridays and the times are the same as the
pick-up time at each location.
We have a number of special events throughout the year, on weekends although
occasionally on a week day/evening, and are always looking for members to help out
at our Green Door booth. This would entail talking to people about the weekly
baskets and helping to sign up new members.
Share your delicious recipes and culinary knowledge with Green Door members. The
recipes should be moderate to easy, and coordinate with that week's basket. This is
a Thursday day/ early evening position. We post what is coming in during the day on
Thursdays, after it has been confirmed, and upload the recipes to the website
