Spanish translator volunteers are needed to help break down language barriers for our non-English speaking hungry neighbors. You can help translate for families, so they can receive all available services they are entitled to at the Freestore Foodbank. Our Spanish translator volunteer will assist the front desk and case managers with Spanish speaking clients, who do not speak English, facilitating effective communication between the two parties.
Volunteers will need to translate any questions concerning customer demographics, sources of income and benefits, people in household, medical/health insurance, and education. Volunteers will also need to answer any questions a Spanish speaking client might have about agency services by providing interpretation services for agency staff or volunteers. These services may be provided face to face or over the phone.
