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
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.

OF THE MONTH
THE FAITHFUL FRIDAY WARRIORS
The Faithful Friday Warriors are our May Volunteers of the Month for NutriPacks. These ten volunteers arrive faithfully every Friday morning at 7:30 am to unload 5-8 pallets of food from the our Central Food Bank truck delivery. They open cartons to stock our shelves and set up all menu items for the Wednesday Pack of over 600 bags each week. These wonderful volunteers also recycle every piece of cardboard and plastic wrappings each week.... all with outgoing, comical comradery spirits and hearts of gold. Thank you Ken, Jim, John, Matt, Doug, Mary, John, Matt, Barry, Ken, Dennis and Jay!
