In this position you will have a lot hands on work and help to both disperse food to local agencies who come to the warehouse to pick up their food, or package food to be sent out to bush Alaska. An interesting aspect of this work is meeting and working with individuals from a local halfway house who are doing their communtiy service with the Food Bank of Alaska. Other than this interaction, this is a job that is "behind the scenes" although very necessary to meeting the hunger needs of Alaskans.
