To comply with FDA requirements and remove all opportunity for foreign objects to fall into the life-saving meals (which could cause choking, tooth breakage and more), FMSC volunteers must remove all jewelry and/or accessories before packing. This includes earrings, watches, rings, necklaces, pins, etc. Wedding bands are permitted however, if your band has a stone you will be required to wear a glove.
They highly recommend all volunteers wear closed-toed shoes. If you volunteer in the warehouse, closed-toed shoes will be required.
If you have had a cough, fever, diarrhea, pink eye, or have been vomiting or are contagious within the last 24 hours, they ask that you reschedule your packing time.
