Volunteers contributed more than 90,000 hours in 2012, equivalent to about 45 full-time positions. Even at Missouri’s minimum wage, it would cost the Food Bank more than $1,692,000 if we had to pay for this help! Volunteers do everything from repackaging bulk food into family-sized packages, to sorting canned goods from food drives, to picking apples at an orchard.
Several hundred people also help us with fundraising events including a 5K/10K race, a sporting clay shoot, radiothons, and other activities throughout central and northeast Missouri.
You’re invited to volunteer one time or on a regular basis. Come with a group or come by yourself. There’s always someone you can team up with at The Food Bank. For a volunteer schedule, Click here or call (573) 474-1020, or (800) 764-3663.
