I received a call to work at a local food bank from PennDOT/Agriculture and AFSCME. Why did I receive a call to work at a food bank?
AFSCME has partnered with the Commonwealth to bring employees back to work at several food banks across the state where there is a great need and a shortage of help. This is strictly on a volunteer basis. We entered into the agreement because PennDOT has the greatest amount of employees who are unable to work or telework. If you volunteer to work, you will be paid your regular rate of pay and work a two week rotation. The hours of work and needs vary from food bank to food bank. For Agriculture, this currently only affects the Agriculture employees who work at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg.
