The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank relies heavily on our community partners to deliver high-quality food assistance programming throughout San Francisco and Marin. Partners like you make it possible for us to distribute over 48 million pounds of food to our neighbors in need each year.
A training in 4 steps
We want to ensure that all new agency shoppers have a full understanding of our shop floor guidelines and food safety best practices and expectations. By the end of the training, you will have a clear understanding of our commitment to ensuring food quality & safety, as well as how to put this knowledge to use when shopping and preparing meals/snacks at your agency.
To complete the Authorized Shopper process all four steps need to be finalized – from watching the videos, taking the test, to getting authorization from your agency Executive/Program Director.
Step 1: Watch the Videos
There are five videos in the playlist below. The next video will begin when you finish the current one.
Yes, there will be a test afterward.
Step 2: Take the test
Take the quick 8-question quiz to test your new knowledge and ensure you have a full understanding of our partnership expectations.
Get authorization from your agency Executive/Program Director. The link below will send the Director to DocuSign where they will be instructed on how to add your name to the shoppers’ list and provide an e-signature.
Once we have received your Authorized Shopper form via DocuSign, you will receive your Authorized Shopper card via email within 5 business days and will need to come in to take a quick tour of our warehouse.
