Ways to help

Senior Box Building

Our CSFP Senior Box Program serves over 1,000 seniors each month. Income-eligible seniors are provided with a monthly, shelf-stable food box with items tailored to their needs. Volunteers help pack these boxes.

Donation Repack

When we receive food drives, volunteers sort through the boxes and canned goods. Food drives happen all year round, but two times a year (May and end of the year) we receive large donations.

Produce Sort (July-November)

When produce is received from grocery stores, it comes in all conditions. Volunteers sort through the produce, separating fruits from vegetables and separating good from bad. There is some lifting of boxes in doing this task.

Good-to-Go Backpacks (August-Early May)

Each week, volunteers build weekend meal kits for students (K-3rd grade) who have been identified by teachers as food insecure. On Friday afternoons, teachers will discreetly place these bags into the students' backpacks, so they have food to sustain them through the weekend. Each kit includes a hand-written encouragement card with additional resources stamped on the back.

How you help Volunteers are the driving force behind our work! Thanks to our volunteers, we were able to distribute over 16 million pounds of food last year.
About us The Foodbank works to relieve hunger in the community through a network of partner agencies by acquiring and distributing food. Food and related supplies are distributed to a network of pantries, community kitchens, shelters, and other charitable programs, all of which support the health and development of food-insecure individuals.
