UPDATE ~ Volunteer at Contra Costa Food Bank on a Saturday

PLEASE GATHER AT THE VOLUNTEER ENTRANCE ON THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING WHERE THE TRUCK DOCK IS LOCATED.  WE WILL BE SORTING AND BOXING FOOD TO GET IT READY FOR DISTRIBUTION FOR THOSE IN NEED.  PLEASE DRESS COMFORTABLY AND WEAR CLOSED TOE SHOES; TENNIS SHOES WORK GREAT!

Every day, thousands of people in our community struggle to meet their basic nutritional needs. You can make a difference right now.

Because you are so generous, we can maximize and multiply your gifts of food, money and time. In our hands, a one dollar gift turns into two meals for children, adults or seniors.

With your help, the Food Bank is leading the fight against hunger. Your help can bring immediate relief and hope to a family or individual who is suffering from hunger. The Food Bank has many giving options to meet the interests of our community of supporters.

Without the help of our partners and supporters like you, the work of the Food Bank would not be possible.

Let's give back to those in need and help at the Contra Costa Food Bank. More details to come.

    I'm sorry I missed this. I thought the time had changed to 1:30 from 11:15. I got there about 1:20 signed in and waited until 1:35 and didn't find anyone

      We pull donations out of bins, check for expiration dates, sort into categories (like pasta, canned fruit, peanut butter), then fill boxes by category and send them down a conveyor belt to be stacked in the warehouse for later distribution.

    Does anyone know if we can donate food too? Cans or other non-perishables?

    I would like to know who you spoke with to get this set up. I've been trying to volunteer with them on a regular basis since I don't work & csn never get anyone to return a call.

    Great idea for a meet-up. I'll be there unless traveling (a little far out to know for sure).
