Surprise Warehouse Pack and Sort
St. Mary’s Food Bank continuously receives food donations from generous donors that help keep to our shelves stocked for those in need. All of our donated food needs to be thoroughly checked before it can be processed through to our agencies. Help us sort and categorize all of the non-perishable food items to immediately help those who are hungry! This volunteer activity involves checking dates on food, moderate lifting and walking in our cooled warehouse. It is a fun and lively environment and great exercise too!
