Volunteers for Distribution Week work 8:15 a.m. until about 2:30 p.m. Monday thru Thursday and 8:15 a.m. until about noon on Friday. It is not necessary to work every day or even for an entire day. Come and work when you are available. For individuals there are no reservations required, just show up. Groups should contact MFB for volunteering.
During Distribution Week agencies come to Midwest Food Bank to pick up products for their food pantry or soup kitchen. We distribute to ~220 agencies during the week. The process involves the agency selecting the products, the cases of product are moved from pallet to cart and then loaded from the cart into the agency vehicle. While cases may weigh up to 50lbs, we also use volunteers to push carts or to annotate what products the agency takes.
Because volunteers are working in a warehouse environment no open toe shoes are allowed, this means no sandals or flip-flops.View All Events | Calendar Grid View
