United Food Bank Friends Breakfast

United Food Bank’s circle of friends involves many people: agency partners, volunteers, Board Members, corporate and grocery partners, and many more. We will be honoring them at our Annual Friends Breakfast. We need volunteers will help direct traffic for parking and entry into the event, greet breakfast attendees, assist in any logistical needs during the breakfast, then help clear the space after the event. With your help, we’ll be able to show UFB supporters just how important their efforts are to us.

Midnight with Cans

Cosmic Sort Volunteer-A-Thon

No April Fool’s Joke, we promise! We’re sorting AT MIDNIGHT!

Spend a Friday night with good friends, good music, and doing GOOD!

Volunteers will join us for training at 10 pm, then we’ll jump into sorting through food donations to make them available to the more than 181 agencies we serve. Our goal is to sort 15,000 lbs of food – enough to about 12,000 meals available! Each volunteer could potentially get us 340 lbs closer!
