Our team spent the day putting together supplemental food boxes for seniors. We also had the opportunity to tour the new facility and learn about many different services the food bank provided in the community.
I have been to the Utah Food Bank in past years. The new building is a vast improvement in location, parking, and organization. I brought a group of 25 youth and adults. We were welcomed by friendly staff and given clear directions about what to do. The building was clean and the working conditions comfortable. This was the first time many in our group had worked at the food bank. Thank you for giving them a positive experience.
Utah Food Bank provided a great place to volunteer on Monday evening. They were prepared for us the moment we walked in the door and kept us busy until we left. We had a blast packaging french fries and loved wearing the hair nets. Once we were done with that project we had some extra time to decorate some boxes. What a perfect evening, complete with warm fuzzies!
We really had a lot of fun putting cooking instructions and ingredient statements on to donated pizzas. We were then given a tour of the building. I never realized how big the place was and how much food goes thru there to the various sites. And how big the need in the Salt Lake valley is.
As a company we volenteered with three tasks. We packaged spaghetti that was donated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints into 2 lb bags. Then our assistance was needed in getting a mailer out that had been delayed by the post office. Our last task was to decorate boxes that are filled with food and delivered to senior citizens who are home bound. Over all we had a great time volenteering at the food bank and plan to help out in the near future.
My Roommates went on a group date to the Utah Food Bank to volunteer. While there they had us go through the salvaged and damaged foods from the grocery stores and compile boxes of assorted food items for the food pantry’s throughout the state to give out to those in need. We have never done this before and all of us had a great time! Everyone commented about how much they enjoyed our experience. The Food bank staff were organized and fun to work with. The best part was that we all left with a good feeling knowing that we had done something good for not only a great organization but that really will help those in need.
