Borderlands Food Bank has an urgent need for volunteers; we rely on a diverse range of individuals and volunteer groups to inspect, sort, repack and distribute this nutritious product to our registered agencies and direct clients.
The benefits of helping Borderlands are substantial. It is a very hands-on experience, and volunteers actually see and talk to the clients they are helping; realizing you are touching the lives of so many in such a positive way is a rewarding experience.
Volunteers include students, seniors, business professionals, church members, and others. Opportunities are available five days a week; our schedules are flexible and you have the opportunity to work in a relaxed, fun environment.
