In April, The Food Bank will celebrate Global Volunteer Month by opening up more slots for our dedicated volunteers. We will continue to keep our COVID policies and procedures in effect to keep all our staff and volunteers safe, including completing a health screening process and wearing a mask during the entire shift. Starting April 6, 2021, we will open up more shifts, as well as increase the number of volunteers for each shift. Additionally, we will be reopening a morning shift (8:30-10:30 a.m.), which we encourage our older volunteers to sign up for.

To add to the excitement, April 18 – 24 is National Volunteer Week! During this week, The Food Bank plans to celebrate all our volunteers with special prizes, gifts and celebrations. Keep an eye out for more information from the Volunteer Team about how we will celebrate Volunteer Week this year!
