FAMILY MATTERS DAYS
The third Saturday of each month, from 9 a.m. to Noon is designated Family Matters Day at the Food Bank. It's a time when groups (including families, co-workers, service clubs) who can't make it during the normal 9-to-5 work week, come out to the Food Bank for various volunteer opportunities! All of our volunteer opportunities are on a pre-scheduled basis, so please contact our volunteer coordinator to inquire about setting up your next volunteer opportunity.
FOOD BANK FRIDAY
On the first Friday of each month, the Food Bank has another after-hours volunteer opportunity. From 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. volunteers will do a variety of projects. Because of the hours of this opportunity, snacks are supplied, courtesy of a sponsor each month. If you are interested in more information about Food Bank Friday or would like to sponsor a month, call Niaomi at 269-964-3663.
