Food Bank of North Alabama asks for volunteer help

MADISON – A slogan for the Food Bank of North Alabama summarizes its current request: “Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer.” – Author Unknown

In 2022, Food Bank of North Alabama successfully distributed more than 12 million pounds of food. This accomplishment depended on volunteers who helped Food Bank employees to inspect, sort and pack food. Volunteers’ efforts assist the Food Bank in allotting food to partner agencies who then give the food to residents. (foodbanknorthal.org)

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

Volunteer shifts involve sorting and inspecting donated food at a Food Bank warehouse. Volunteers also pack produce for students and their families during the school year. The warehouse environment requires extended standing and walking on concrete.

The Madison warehouse’s address is 9312 Madison Blvd. (just west of Westchester Road). Slots are available on Tuesday from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and on Wednesday and Thursday from 1 to 3:30 p.m.

The Huntsville warehouse’s address is 2000-B Vernon Ave. Volunteer openings are available on Tuesday from 1 to 3 p.m. and on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 to11:30 a.m.

To sign up, visit foodbanknorthal.org, and click the “Get Involved” dropdown menu and then click “Volunteer.” On the introduction webpage, click the “Volunteer” bar.

The subsequent webpage includes a calendar on which the volunteer can select the day and time slot to work. Then, a section is displayed to type contact information.

The volunteer coordinator will send confirmation email with shift details and warehouse policies. For questions, call 256-836-9407.

To schedule volunteer time for a group, contact the volunteer coordinator to determine the shift that will work best for the group’s size and scheduling needs. Email volunteer@fbofna.org.

In addition, the Food Bank has openings for their mobile pantry, a good option for people who want to interact with the public. For more information, email volunteer@fbofna.org.

For more information, call 256-791-2082 or 256-836-9407.

Food Bank of North Alabama also maintains several Hunger Relief Programs: Feeding Neighbors in Need for 11 North Alabama counties; The Good Food Project; students’ backpack and summer meals; Grocery Store Donation Program; disaster response; and SNAP.

For general information, email communityrelations@fbofna.org or visit foodbanknorthal.org.
