Newman Night at the Food Bank

Second Monday of the Month

Newman Night at the Food Bank

The Food Bank is a regional disaster and hunger relief network that acquires and distributes millions of pounds of food annually to partner agencies across a 32-county area. A member of Feeding America, the Food Bank is able to work with manufacturers, wholesalers, processors, growers, retailers and restaurants to secure donations and food at reduced prices. They depend on volunteer groups, such as ours, to repackage this food for the recipients.

Our usual night is the second Monday of each month. Your help is needed more than ever in the summertime! Our next Newman Night at the Food Bank is Monday, July 9 from 6-8 p.m.

The Food Bank asks our volunteers to be at least 9 years old and not wear open-toed shoes as a safety concern. If you’re a high school or college student who needs volunteer hours, please come! Bring a friend or family member, as well, if you’d like.  No experience is necessary! Please arrive at 6 p.m. The Food Bank’s address is 2101 Vandiver Drive. If you have questions, please call Gloria Young at 573-673-3070.
