FOOD PACKING AND SORTING:
A very important task of Volunteer Duties at the Food Bank is the packing and sorting of donated bulk food. This might include inspecting, cleaning, sorting, or preparation of special food boxes. This is all part of getting together donations ready for distributions.
FOOD PACKING--Volunteer Days & Hours:
Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9;00 am to noon.
The Food Bank’s Food Distributions’ Outreach consists of predominantly four main sites in Nevada County where our volunteers come to help allocate food to families and individuals in need.
If interested in Volunteering—first please, fill out the Volunteer Application, and we can assist you in finding a distribution location and time; whether there is a need and you can help. You can view the times and locations on our Monthly Distribution Page.
SUMMER LUNCH PROGRAM
From time to time, the Food Bank looks for help from reliable drivers, during the summer, for the
Children’s Summer Lunch Program.
There is also a need for extra help preparing and packing of the summer lunches and then delivering them to our local children in need. This is a valuable and great opportunity for high school students.
