Volunteer Training Opportunities
Mid-Ohio Food Collective Trainings
The Mid-Ohio Food Collective offers regular training opportunities for food pantry staff and volunteers. For volunteers, the most useful trainings are FreshTrak and Food Safety. These trainings, specifically, will help you learn more about pantry operations and make you an even more effective volunteer! They also occasionally offer training on advocacy, and other topics that may be of interest to you.
For most trainings, volunteers will need to register with an agency name and number: Heart to Heart Agency #1042
This online via zoom workshop will provide the fundamentals to get started with FreshTrak at your agency. Participants with learn how to administer the intake process using FreshTrak and will be guided on best practices for developing an efficient process in registering your clients. For agencies already using FreshTrak, this workshop will be helpful as a refresher of the basics.

Sexual Abuse Prevention Training
The safety of the children we serve is our top priority, so anyone who volunteers with children or is a staff member (whether you work with children or not) at First Community is required to attend our Darkness to Light sexual abuse prevention training. We are asking Heart to Heart volunteers to take this training, as we work in and around the building when Preschool is in session. The training is now offered at no cost to our volunteers. Please consider enrolling to learn how to better protect our children.
