Fresh Food Recovery

Join a team of people who love to ensure healthy food options are available to everyone. The new Fresh Food Recovery program is our newest initiative to provide fresh food to those in need by recovering food from local grocery stores.

We need small teams of volunteers to sort and process perishable food that is being received each morning at the Food Bank. Daily shifts will be 2-3 hrs long and potential candidates will need to lift and move 35-50lb containers.

Sign yourself up and we’ll add you to a team or grab 3 or 4 friends and sign up for a team!
