VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES TO END HUNGER—TOGETHER
So much of our food bank and hunger relief operations rely on the time, talents and generosity of volunteers. From food sorting and packing to client assistance and skill-based projects, volunteers serve side-by-side with our employees as we work together to end hunger.
Every day, you’ll find volunteers busy readying food for the Minnesota and western Wisconsin community from inside our Brooklyn Park volunteer center, assisting low-income households with SNAP applications and senior food boxes, and sharing expert skills and industry knowledge on special projects.
