Volunteer Responsibilities: The Food Bank is moving to a “most needed” task of the Food Bank volunteer style. We will ask our volunteers to complete our most urgent need. This often includes working with bulk produce to send out on our mobile pantries, packing bags for the Food Bank’s Backpack program, repacking bulk donations, or working with food given by our corporate partners. We do not accept court-ordered community service or individuals in the diversion program.
