Tucson’s Community Food Bank Needs Volunteers

image_pdfimage_print

Since March 24th, members of the Arizona National Guard have been helping pack food and to help with distribution.  Since the Guard orders are beginning to expire, the Food Bank urgently needs volunteers to assist in distribution.  Know that distribution is outdoors and they drop pallets 6 feet apart to comply with social distancing.

The Food Bank is seeking groups to sign up to volunteer from 6:30am-10:30am at Kino Sports Complex to help distribute food to their clients.  The dates available at this time are August 6, 11,13, 18, 25 and 27th.

The work is very physical and in the heat. Since they’re giving out produce and dairy boxes, they require the ability to lift 25-50lbs. Snacks and water are provided.

The rewards are great, however. The ‘thank yous’ from clients are the heartwarming highlights of the day.

All precautions necessary to fulfill this task will be taken, including temperature checks and wearing masks. Please reach out to Volunteer Services with any questions: Volunteer@communityfoodbank.org
