Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Food Bank's mission. Every day, Food Bank volunteers are making a tangible contribution to our communities. Last year, Food Bank volunteers gave a recording breaking 253,567 hours of their time. This is equivalent to 122 full-time employees -- literally doubling the size of our staff! Volunteers are vital to ensuring nutritious food reaches nearly 630,000 individuals living in food-insecure households each year.
