It takes all kinds of help to run a food bank. We are always looking for volunteer 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 PACKING--Volunteer Days & Hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9:00 am to noon.
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 distribution location and time to volunteer. 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. SUMMER LUNCH--Volunteer Days & Hours: Monday-Friday 11:45-12:45.
