I had the opportunity to volunteer here several times with my family, which was a wonderful way to allow young children to participate in community service and volunteerism. The program is run extremely efficiently, and I was impressed with not only the volume of food they have moving through there, but with the variety of programs they have implemented to get food to the people who need it.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

The foodbank does not provide clothing. The Foodbank distributes food only...Fridays 9am-11am. The General Public is given a list of numbers to call for a Food search. The Foodbank is not open to the General Public for food other than the hours listed about.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Diverse and ill informed..Does the staff of the Foodbank truly understand the mission statement.
