Volunteers Make the Difference!

Food Bank volunteers contributed more than 16,000 hours last year.

Food Bank of West Central Texas volunteers come from all walks of life and share one thing in common — the willingness to give of themselves to help their neighbors in need. These dedicated people help with product recovery, work in the warehouse, and assist with special events and many other activities.

The following are areas you may choose to spend your time:

Warehouse Support

The warehouse is the “heart” of the food bank. During regular weekday business hours, volunteers sort and pack food for distribution.

Special Events

You can help with food drives, such as Share Your Christmas at KRBC-TV during December. Large groups can schedule a weekend by contacting the Volunteer Coordinator.

Food Rescue

Food Bank staff regularly retrieve donations from area grocery stores and businesses. Instead of wasting these products, Food Bank staff pick them up for our member agencies. If you are interested in volunteering at the Food Bank we need you to help sort these products!

Pack Sacks for our BackPack Programs

Help pack sacks for the Backpack programs.

Administrative assistance

Four times a year, the Food Bank does direct mailings to around 3,000 people. We need help folding letters, stuffing and labeling envelopes.
