How to Volunteer with The Idaho Foodbank –
In 2014, more than 17,000 volunteers dedicated approximately 48,000 hours to helping The Idaho Foodbank provide emergency food assistance. Volunteers sort, repack, and load food donations; teach cooking classes, build backpacks; and distribute food at mobile pantries.
Because of this volunteer support, the Foodbank is able to function with far fewer full-time employees, thereby directing more money to programs and services that feed hungry people. Simply put, The Idaho Foodbank would not be able to function as efficiently without the dedicated support of our volunteers.
The most popular shifts fill up quickly, so it’s best to sign up well in advance of the date you wish to volunteer.
