Food Bank for Larimer County
Since the middle of January, the Food Bank has been distributing food five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday, to families dealing with food insecurity. This change was prompted by the growing number of people requiring food assistance. Prior to this, there would be days at the Loveland Food Share where cars would be lined up out onto the street.
With the additional days, more volunteer opportunities have opened up. Opportunities at the Food Share run the gamut. Whether it's pushing carts of food out to the clientele, directing traffic, inspecting bread, or bagging assorted food items (AFI), there's no shortage of work. Also, the Food Bank has another Food Share in Fort Collins and there's always the warehouse out by the airport where volunteers sort food drive donations, bag produce, or help out in the kitchen preparing food. Shifts at both locations usually last about two and a half hour.
Several members of our congregation already are regulars at the Food Bank. You can sign up directly at their website as an individual. On occasion, our church has volunteered as a group. If you have an interest in volunteering as a group either on a one time or regular basis (once a month?) reply to this email with your suggestions and availability.
