Last year, nearly 8,500 individuals volunteered with Community Harvest Food Bank, helping us collect, sort, and distribute food to those in need. This is a GREAT place for families with children to volunteer and there is always something to do. Help stock shelves and sort food, or if you prefer office tasks, we have those too. You can volunteer at special event booths and help CHFB bring awareness to the public.
CHFB hosts and gives tours to church groups, business groups, school groups, and more – large and small – who want to give back to the community. We would love to work with you to schedule a day for your specific volunteer interest, and we have a board room available that is great for meetings during group retreats or lunches.
Every week, multiple groups are touring and volunteering at the food bank. We host youth and children’s groups as young as five with adult supervision. Businesses, organizations, and other groups visit us often. In fact, many companies choose Community Harvest Food Bank for their day of service. Many groups work in our Community Cupboard pantry, stocking shelves with canned goods and other vital foods. With over 35,000 pounds of food distributed weekly from Community Cupboard, we are always looking for an extra hand.
In addition to making a difference, group tours raise awareness about food insecurity in our region. In northeast Indiana, 92,530 people remain hungry, according to Feeding America. With your help, we can eliminate hunger for good.
One of the activities we’re most proud of from our volunteers is the colored bags completed by our younger age-groups. These cheerfully decorated bags carry the food delivered to homebound seniors in our SeniorPak program. We often hear feedback from seniors and children alike who really get enjoyment from the art. It is just another small way we like to show we care.
