Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Food Bank's mission. Every day, Food Bank volunteers are making a tangible contribution to our communities. Last year, Food Bank volunteers gave 230,694 hours of their time. This is equivalent to 111 full-time employees -- literally doubling the size of our staff! Volunteers are vital to ensuring nutritious food reaches the more than 600,000 individuals living in food-insecure households each year.

It's an exciting time to volunteer at Food Bank CENC: We have recently transitioned to a new online sign-up system! Pre-registering with your account helps us get an accurate head count, and lets you track your volunteer hours over time. Thank you for your patience as we work through any final hiccups with the new system.
