VOLUNTEER AT THE FOOD BANK

We could not do what we do without the help of our wonderful volunteers! Volunteers work in the sorting rooms helping us pack senior boxes and sort food items.

Volunteers may come Monday-Thursday, 8am-12pm and 1pm-4pm. Weekends are also available. Groups are encouraged to call ahead to set up your volunteer day(s) and time(s).

Please call Gene Haynes, 675-2400 ext.115 or email ghaynes@foodbanknla.org for more information on volunteering.

 


OTHER WAYS TO HELP

The Food Bank provides more food for our community when essential professional services and products are donated.  We have an on-going need for vehicle and fork lift services, minor plumbing and electrical work and lawn maintenance.   Please call us at (318) 675-2400.  Every donation, large or small, is appreciated.
