Announcing Our New Volunteer Reward Program!

At Sustainable Food Center, we are working to create a more direct way to thank volunteers for all the time, love, attention, and devotion they give to our three main programs. From Saturday mornings at our SFC Farmers’ Markets to days spent in the garden prepping for seasonal planting. The hours add up and truly help us work towards our mission of strengthening the local food system and improving access to nutritious, affordable food.

On January 1st we rolled out our new Volunteer Thank You Reward Program. All SFC volunteers will earn rewards based on the number of volunteer hours completed. This system will run during the calendar year from January to December and reset at the beginning of each new year. All volunteer hours will be tracked through our internal tracking systems.
