We have the following Volunteer Opportunities:
The 1st Monday of each month our truck comes from Reno with our food order and produce. We can use extra helping hands from about 11:15 a.m.-1:30 p.m. to unload the truck and put things away.
If you are interested in volunteering at the soup kitchen, please call the food bank at 625-2223 and talk to Barbara. Most of the groups that prepare and serve meals at the soup kitchen have adequate help but occasionally they either need an extra hand or some nights, we need a group to fill in for another group.
The 4th Monday of each month, volunteers are needed to help distribute food at the Sports Complex Ball Field (behind Les Schwab). Show up at 12:00 p.m. and offer to help. (If the truck hasn’t arrived yet from the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, it should arrive shortly.)
The Christmas boxes are assembled at the 4-H Exhibit Hall the week prior to Christmas. We start assembling boxes at 9 a.m. until they are all completed the first day. The next day, we prepare for distribution of the boxes at 9 a.m. and usually finish about 5-6 p.m. after all the boxes are picked up and the hall is cleaned up. Check in December for the exact dates.
If you have further questions about any of these opportunities, please call the food bank at 625-2223 during regular business hours.
