The Neighbor Helping Neighbor Food Bank has the following volunteer opportunities!
sorting food donations;
assist with the bagging of food
checking customers in
assisting customers with shopping
Volunteers usually work during one of two shifts— mornings 7:30 to 12:30 and afternoons 12:15 to 4:00. The hours are flexible and we will try to accommodate your schedules. For reasons of confidentiality and fairness to all of our clients, we will no longer permit current clients of the Food Bank or their family members to volunteer.
If you are thinking about volunteering and would like more information, please contact the Food Bank at 717-594-0027 and ask for Crystal.
Many of the people who help are retired people from all walks of life. We welcome groups from churches and schools. Students needing community service for school, as well as others needing community service to satisfy the courts can also be accommodated. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we can not accept any groups larger than 5 individuals.
