Volunteer at your local food bank

 

Contact your local food bank or pantry to volunteer.

According to Hunger in America 2010: Indiana State Report, 72 percent of food pantries and 52 percent of soup kitchens served by the Feeding Indiana’s Hungry network report relying entirely on volunteers and have no paid staff.  Volunteers provide around 150,000 hours of service a year to the member food banks of Feeding Indiana’s Hungry, the equivalent to approximately 70 more full time employees.  In addition to helping member food banks save time and labor costs, volunteerism helps raise awareness of hunger in America and promotes community involvement in solving the problem.
