Featured Volunteer Opportunity: Fresh Food Recovery
Join a team of people who love to ensure healthy food options are available to everyone. The new Fresh Food Recovery program is our newest Archway Food Bank initiative to provide fresh food to those in need by recovering food from local grocery stores.
We need volunteers to sort and process perishable food that is being received each morning at the Food Bank. Daily shifts will be 2-3 hrs long and potential candidates will need to lift and move 35-50lb containers.
Shifts are available 7 days a week. Shifts begin at 8:30 am on weekdays and then 9:30 am on weekends.
