Become a Food Bank Volunteer & Help Us Feed The Hungry

At Blessings of Hope, we depend on our food bank volunteers and their efforts to serve our mission and the community.

“Without our dedicated volunteers and generous donors, it would be hard to maximize the blessings that God pours out.”

-David Lapp, CEO

Currently, we have over 3,800 registered volunteers, but we’re always looking for caring, hardworking individuals, families, businesses, or church groups to help us spread the gift of Hope in the form of food.

Blessings of Hope can use volunteers in the following areas:

  • Repacking/re-bagging food
  • Packing food boxes
  • Truck and equipment maintenance
  • Truck drivers (CDL and non-CDL)
  • At our annual fundraiser events
  • To help at outreaches (outreaches happen every week)
  • To help stock shelves
  • Cleanup
