Learning To Serve

Aug 13, 2018 | Newsletter

Congratulations to Mackenzie Grover, a fifth-grader from Elmira, for earning the title of Junior Volunteer of the Year at our Very Important Volunteer Awards (VIVAs) in April!

Mackenzie began volunteering in 2017 to fulfill a school community service requirement, and continued to volunteer long after she completed her obligation. “It feels really good that I am actually able to help out,” Mackenzie says.

Food Bank volunteer shifts are active and hands-on; a great opportunity for children 8 years and up and their families. We could not do what we do without the thousands of volunteers who donate their time each year.

Want to lend a hand? We need summer volunteers! See a list of all available volunteer shifts and sign up online at
