Guidelines for Volunteers

As a Stone Soup Corvallis, Inc. volunteer, I will:

  • Treat every person with respect.
  • Recognize that others are depending on me. I will show up when I am expected and stay for my full shift, provided that I am in good health. 
  • If for any reason I cannot serve my shift, I will notify my team leader as soon as possible. 
  • If I don’t feel well before my shift, with a cold or cough, or the flu, or have a fever over 100 F, or have been exposed to Covid-19, or another readily contagious disease, I will stay home and notify my team leader as soon as possible.
  • Sign in for each shift, with my name, signature and legible contact information. 
  • Take my responsibilities seriously and perform my duties to the best of my ability.
  • Comply with Health Department and Stone Soup food safety and health regulations. I will rigorously wash my hands on arrival, avoid touching my face and my phone, and rewash and/or wear gloves as needed during my shift. 
  • Inform my team leader if I become concerned that the conduct of a volunteer or diner may be inappropriate.
  • Promptly report any civil rights complaint to my team leader.
  • By signing the Volunteer Sign-in Log at the meal site before each shift, I will release Stone Soup Corvallis from any liability arising out of damage, loss or injury to me or my property that happens as the result of volunteer activities. 
  • Report any injury, even a minor scrape or burn, to my team leader, and fill out and sign an accident report form.
  • Keep confidential any personal information I learn from diners or volunteers.

All Volunteers must:

Before reporting for the first shift:

At the beginning of every shift:

  • Sign the Volunteer Sign-In Log at the meal site every time you serve attesting that you have met these requirements and agree to abide by the guidelines summarized above.


  • Reread and review the Oregon Food Bank civil rights and food safety training materials.
