Get involved with the mission to end food deserts
Do you want to join in on the fun of providing access to healthy and affordable foods for all!?
There are many ways to get involved. We have programs that need volunteer support on a weekly basis, like food sorting, recycling and composting. Every Thursday at noon.
As we roll out more programming this Spring and Summer, we can use help with our community events, cooking demonstrations and awareness building.
Warehouse Food Sorting
We are in need of volunteers to assist in sorting our food. This is an important task that Kanbe’s Markets depends on each and every week.
You will want to dress warm – our warehouse is kept cold to keep the food nice and fresh. Closed-toed shoes are required and clothing you don’t mind getting a bit dirty are recommended.
Please use our signup sheet for more details and other volunteer opportunities.
In order to get the word out about Kanbe’s Markets, we host and speak at various events in Kansas City. If you are able and interested in volunteering to set-up or work at one of these events, please feel free to contact us.
Are you social media savvy and want to help spread the word about Kanbe’s Markets? If the answer to one of those is yes, we could use help growing our followers and informing our supporters. Specifically, we need help with meaningful posts, photographs from our stores, experiences and testimonials from our customers, etc.
We are seeking all creative ideas and help with campaign executions.
Accounting and Data Tracking
For our efforts and resources to make the greatest impact, Kanbe’s Markets is looking for someone experienced in simple accounting and QuickBooks to help us 2 – 8 hours per week. Other tasks include data entry and inventory tracking.
To reach as many Kansas Citians as possible, our website needs a complete update in SEO. This is a great opportunity for a skilled person to earn volunteer hours. Or, if your employer allows you to take time away from the office to do service work, this may be perfect for you.
