Without the labor of love of time and effort provided by our volunteers, the Food Bank of West Central Texas could not accomplish its mission. For individuals and groups, all volunteer opportunities are customized to suit the skills and needs of those involved. Corporate volunteers design unique teambuilding projects, while school groups learn about hunger issues when volunteering in their community.
- Warehouse Helpers
You can help us sort, organize and repackage dry and canned goods for our Food Rescue Program, pack nutritional backpacks for food our Backpack for Kids program, create senior boxes for our senior pantries and help us with any warehouse food projects that arise. Volunteer shifts are Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. -3:00 p.m. or by appointment only for after hours or weekends during the Holidays.
