Together, We Can Solve Hunger!
Volunteers are a vital part of the Freestore Foodbank’s strategic plan to provide 50 million meals by the year 2020. Every time you volunteer, you will leave knowing that you have helped to provide Food, Connection and Hope for our neighbors in need.
In 2015, over 10,000 volunteers contributed over 84,000 hours of service to the Freestore. We need volunteers every day to pack Power Packs and Senior Boxes for the youngest and oldest in our community, sort food donations to be sent to our Community partners, provide customer service at our Food Room (pantry), plant and harvest crops at the farm, assist with special events throughout the year and provide talents and skills for dozens of other activities that help people when they are in crisis.
Only through joining our efforts with member of our community can we make a difference and work to solve hunger!
