Looking for another great volunteer
We are blessed with an amazing crew of volunteers at Orangevale Food Bank. We are always looking for more good people who want to help us serve the community. One current need for a new great volunteer is to help coordinate our monthly food drives at local grocery stores.
One weekend each month, we set up at the entrances of 2-3 stores (Walmart, Safeway & Savemart). We pass out flyers listing the 5-7 items the food bank currently is in need of. Shoppers generally purchase a couple extra items and drop the donations with us on the way out.
This Food Drive Coordinator would help to set up in the morning and check in with the volunteers throughout the day, making sure they have everything they need...Read More
Turkey for Every Family This Year
Every year, hundreds of families rely on food banks like ours to help put together their holiday meals. These meals are an extra expense and we’re glad to rally the community together to help meet this need. Our teams will be putting together several hundred boxed dinners along with frozen turkeys to pass out on Monday, November 25th from 9:00 – 11:00 am.
Families interested in receiving a turkey dinner will need to put their name on the reservation list by visiting during a regular shift, or by contacting us via phone or email. Leave your name and family size and we will be sure you’re added to the list.
We need lots of volunteers throughout the month to help sort food, prepare boxes and help pass out turkeys on the 25th...Read More
For Thanksgiving this year, we are expecting to serve several hundred Orangevale and Fair Oaks families with a turkey dinner. To do this, we need lots of help collecting food donations throughout the month of November. Will you help?
Volunteering is easy. Two hour shifts – inside the store. All you have to do is show up and smile. We have flyers to pass out at the entrance of each of the stores as we welcome shoppers. The flyers list the top food items we are needing to collect. Many of the shoppers purchase extra items to donate and drop off as they leave. Super easy and huge impact.
