City Food Bank
Each year, the City Food Bank gives food to more than 36,000 hungry people
in our county. Some are low-income families. Others are unemployed. Still
others have had their homes destroyed by fires. As a volunteer, you will first
greet people who bring food to the Food Bank. Next, you will help unload the
food from cars and write down what was given. Then your biggest job will be
to sort food and pack it into boxes. To participate, you will need to complete a
half-hour training class that will count toward your service hours.
Teacher Coordinator: Mr. Prescott
