If you benefit from the foodbank, please consider volunteering!
Short Creek Foodbank is holding our next food distribution Wednesday February 8th, 2017. We are looking for volunteers due to the growth that we have seen in the numbers of people coming in for services. This will be our combine shipment containing the general food donation from St. Mary's Foodbank Alliance as well as the TEFAP food boxes.
New Volunteer Registration and Training:
Due to the expansion of the food distribution program and the increased demand we would like to expand our hours from 1pm to 7pm to accommodate those who are working during our normal distribution hours. We cannot do it without more volunteers. Specifically we are seeking local Short Creek Area volunteers to help us in assisting the community with these expanded hours by serving during the early afternoon shift (3pm to 7pm). Mandatory Volunteer Registration and Training is required. Registration and Training will be conducted on February 7th at 2pm at the Short Creek Family Services Food Distribution Facility. Please send a private message via Facebook to Sherrie Kuns-Mackert or go to our contact page (click here) and send her a message to sign up for this training.
Volunteers need to arrive about 10:45am for the briefing. The truck arrives between 11-Noon. Food distribution begins at 1pm and runs until 5:30pm (with an expectation to expand our hours to 7pm based upon our volunteer support).
