Volunteer Center - March
The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma understands there are growing fears about the impact of COVID-19 virus in central and western Oklahoma. Based upon the very nature of the work we do, the Regional Food Bank follows rigid federal and state food safety regulations each and every day.
That is why in abundance of concern for the safety of volunteers and staff, the Regional Food Bank is CANCELLING ALL volunteer shifts which include the following opportunities: Hope’s Kitchen, Volunteer Center, Protein Packaging Center, Court-Appointment Community Service Orientation, Senior Mobile Markets and the Moore Food and Resource Center for March 15th through March 21st.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Regional Food Bank and enable us to serve the one in six Oklahomans who are food insecure. Our staff is in daily communications with local, state and federal health agencies and the organization will evaluate future cancellations on a week-by-week basis.
Volunteers like you are essential to providing food for Oklahomans living with hunger
Through this on-site volunteer experience, volunteers like you sort, pack and prepare food for a variety of Regional Food Bank Programs. Activities may include:
- Assembling sacks of nutritious food for the Food for Kids Backpack Program
- Packing Commodity Supplemental Food Program boxes full of food for seniors living on fixed incomes
- Sorting and packing bread, produce, package meals and/or cans
- Tagging bags
Because the Regional Food Bank's inventory changes daily, the Regional Food Bank cannot guarantee volunteers who sign up to work in the Volunteer Center will pack and prepare food for a specific program.
Volunteers must be at least 8 years old to volunteer for this project. Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
