Did you know that over half of all soup kitchens, food pantries, and other meal programs run entirely on volunteers? Across the nation, millions of volunteers make a big impact through a small commitment of time to help get food into the hands of those who need it most.
During the holiday season, and beyond, millions of people struggle to put food on their tables. If you want to help others who are food insecure, you may want to consider volunteering at a food bank. From sorting to packing to distributing food, every volunteer counts and matters when it comes to helping those who need some much-needed help.
Volunteering during the holiday season is great way to spread Christmas cheer, and finding volunteer opportunities is easy. You might even be able to organize a group volunteer experience with up to 50 volunteers.
If you want to learn more about specific volunteer needs and opportunities in your area, you can enter your zip code or state on the Feeding America website to Find Your Local Food Bank. If you are unable to volunteer your time, you can DONATE NOW to help families facing hunger. Feeding America has been providing food to people in need through a nationwide network of food banks for more than 35 years.
