For the past five years, the Department of Energy, Office of the Inspector General, has participated in an annual service day. The last three of those have been spent volunteering at the Pocatello branch of The Idaho Foodbank.
According to one employee, “We enjoy coming to the food bank because it is such meaningful work. The food bank helps so many local people and it is very rewarding to contribute to that in a small way. I think we often overlook how many people in our community need the assistance the food bank provides. It’s a heart-wrenching reminder when we see the massive amount of food handled at the food bank. It was especially rewarding this year to help assemble the weekend meals for local children and we look forward to our service day again next year.”
