I volunteer at IFFS every month, usually sorting food or filling backpacks for their Backpack Buddy program. It is amazing how much food comes in and out of their facility every day! There is always something to do and I always get a great workout lifting cans instead of free weights.

The
backpacks are given out at local schools on Fridays for students that receive free school lunches to take home and have meals over the weekend. They bring the empty backpacks back on Monday and the cycle starts over. The last time I was there my group of 7 assembled 200 bags in about 90 minutes.

After the recent tornadoes IFFS handed out food to anyone that came without any questions or forms - a true blessing while everyone was still talking to insurance companies, FEMA, etc.

They have other programs that I have not been involved in like a cooking program that prepares hot food while preparing the unemployed for new careers in the restaurant industry.
