About our Volunteers
The Friends In Need Bank is always looking for dedicated, compassionate people who desire to volunteer with our Food Bank. We strive to find the most outgoing, caring individuals in our community that have a strong desire to support our clients and their needs.
The Society’s Board of Directors for the Friends In Need Food Bank is also a volunteer role. Our Board of Directors works diligently to guarantee our clients are being serviced to the best of our ability.
The Ultimate Friend
Ask anyone who’s been at one job for a long time and they’ll say after awhile, the years go by in a blur. Such is the case for Vivian Anderson, long-time volunteer at the Friends In Need Food Bank. She joined a year after it opened in 1989 and has been with Friends In Need ever since.
The majority of our volunteers are needed between Tuesday-Friday from 7:30am-12:30pm. During the year, many volunteer opportunities exist for events and special occasions. These events usually take place in the evening or on weekends.
