We are always looking for volunteers to help with:
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 includes inspecting, cleaning, sorting, and preparation of special food boxes. This is all part of preparing donations for distribution.
FOOD DISTRIBUTIONS: Our organization has five Food Distribution Outreach sites in Nevada County where our volunteers come to help allocate food to families and individuals in need. Volunteers also help get food to cars, clean up distribution sites, and assist with giving food away. Those interested in volunteering—may fill out the Volunteer Application. We can then assist you in finding a time to volunteer.
SUMMER LUNCH PROGRAM: Every summer, the Food Bank looks for reliable drivers 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 local students to fulfill volunteer hours and get more involved in their community.
