Cityteam is a Christian non-profit dedicated to supporting communities by meeting immediate needs and enabling lasting solutions for those struggling with poverty, homelessness, and addiction. Being part of Cityteam is not just a career but a calling. Whether we’re working on the front-lines in Programs or working behind the scenes in Support Services, we feel privileged to use our education, experience, and gifts to love people and bring glory to God.


Cityteam has two trucks and teams of drivers for the Starbucks FoodShare program. We are currently looking for multiple drivers to pick up rescued food from San Jose Starbucks locations during the graveyard shift. Since you will be transporting perishable food, you must have or be willing to obtain, with Cityteam’s assistance, your ServSafe food handling certificate. The FoodShare Driver will need to work independently, always keeping safety a top priority. This is an excellent opportunity for a reliable individual who may already be working during the day and wishes to supplement his or her income, as the pick-up times are after normal business hours. There is also the opportunity to pick up extra shifts to help cover other drivers when they are sick or on vacation. Each night’s schedule will be a full 8-hours. There is no flexibility on work times, as the pick-ups must be made in the designated window of 9:00 pm-5:30 am.


The FoodShare Driver position is a 16-hour a week non-exempt position, and you would be able to work in a Christian environment that values Teamwork, Accountability, Humility, Innovation, and Joy.



  1. Show up for work on time every day you are scheduled
  2. Provide advance-notice of any potential missed shifts
  3. Drive to assigned stores, make pick-ups, and deliver food to Cityteam in allotted time
  4. Accurately disarm and set alarm at each location
  5. Make sure locations are securely locked when you leave
  6. Ensure food safety
  7. Precool and maintain refrigerated van to 38 degrees
  8. Take and record internal temperatures at all stores, inside the van, and upon delivery at Cityteam
  9. Record all pounds onto MealConnect online platform
  10. Record all required temperature checks and make results available to SHFB staff upon request
