Volunteer!!

For more information on how you can help with our mission of feeding the hungry, please contact Jimmy Thornton,

Volunteer Coordinator, at 979.779.3663 or [email protected]

We work with businesses, civic organizations, or individuals to design a fun and rewarding volunteer program.

Each year volunteers log about 17,000 hours. This community support saves the Food Bank thousands of dollars

every year, keeping our overhead low and our productivity levels high.
