What to Expect

As families…

Arrive for the session, everyone sits in an entrance room, is debriefed, and watch a video before entering the back room.

Then they divide everyone into groups. Each group has approximately 10 people working together to add 4 ingredients to a bag that gets sealed and then packed into a box.

Then there are volunteers working in the warehouse restocking ingredients and carrying boxes to the back.

There are also jobs placing stickers on bags.

Music plays while the packing occurs and at the end

Everyone helps to clean up.

Jewelry policy

To comply with FDA requirements and remove all opportunity for foreign objects to fall into our life-saving meals (which could cause choking, tooth breakage and more), FMSC volunteers must remove all jewelry and/or accessories before packing.

  • No jewelry is permitted in the packing room, labeling areas, Warehouse Crew area or when inspecting raw ingredients.
  • Prohibited jewelry includes earrings, watches, rings, necklaces, pins, brooches, etc.
  • Wedding bands are permitted. However, if your band has a stone, you will be required to wear a glove.
  • Facial piercings, gauges and new earrings that lock in the back are permitted (please inform a staff member).
  • Medical alert bracelets and necklaces may be worn.

Jewelry FAQs

Will there be a safe place for me to put my jewelry at FMSC?

There are a limited number of lockers available for use at our permanent packing sites, with a personal pin code locking system. FMSC is not responsible for the safekeeping of any volunteer’s jewelry, so if you are concerned, it is best to leave it at home.

Can I put my jewelry in my pocket?

No, please do not place loose jewelry into your pockets. However, FMSC will provide a plastic, zipped bag for your jewelry, which you can then place into your pocket.

I’ve volunteered at FMSC in the past and was allowed to wear jewelry, why can’t I do that anymore?

In order to comply with FDA standards for food manufacturing plants, FMSC was required to change the jewelry policy. The quality of our food is very important to us—this updated policy will help to insure that foreign objects will not contaminate our food.

If my earrings will be covered by the hairnet FMSC makes me wear, can I leave them in?

No, you still must remove your earrings.
