Upon arrival at the food bank, food is inspected and if necessary, sorted, repackaged and labeled by staff and volunteers. Volunteers are the food bank’s lifeblood. Each year, hundreds of volunteers serve thousands of hours in our warehouse, doing tasks such as sorting through food donations, portioning bulk food items into family-sized bags and creating meal boxes. Without their dedication to the fight against hunger, we couldn’t make the difference that we do.
After it has been processed, the food is then safely stored until it can be distributed throughout our 40-county service area.
