NutriPacks is made up of volunteers that are passionate and hard-working. We invite you to join us! We welcome new volunteers including individuals, businesses, school groups/teams, organizations and more. 

Many of our volunteer positions require physical activity:

  • Unloading trucks:  handling cases of food including heavy canned goods and large/awkward sized boxes of cereal, refrigerated and frozen items, crates of milk

  • Loading shelfs:  opening / cutting cardboard cases, loading food onto shelfs, breaking cardboard down for recycling, loading recycling and trash dumpster from carts in all weather

  • Packing backpacks:

    • Walking while loading bags from shelves.

    • Loading packed bags, up to 12 lbs, onto distribution shelfs.

  • Delivering backpacks to schools: loading and unloading 12 lbs packs in car or van.


There are some activities that are less physically taxing:

  • Distribution of bags at schools.

  • Check in desk on distribution day at CD Middle School.

Volunteers are required to obtain criminal and child abuse clearances prior to participating in activities.

Mary Imboden


Mary brought her skills and dedication into a volunteer path by joining the CDSD NutriPacks Advisory Board in 2020, where she advocates for students who are food insecure. Because NutriPacks is a non-profit food distribution program run entirely by volunteers, Mary has numerous supporting roles as the PR Coordinator. Running the social media page and attending events to take photos; making reels to commemorate special moments; using social media to thank donors and to recognize the program’s valuable volunteers; communicating with families; coordinating a yearly slideshow; designing and editing the NutriPacks brochure and helping with the food distribution at CD Middle School, are just a few of the tasks. Along with this volunteer ‘job’ Mary has a real job where she continues her quest to help others—instructing ESL students at HACC and at Catholic Charities. Mary is first and foremost devoted to her family including husband Keith, their children and spouses and grandkids, and her extended family, all of whom she’s always been eternally grateful for and recognizes that she doesn’t say that enough.
