Last fall, a team from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory created a database of volunteers, contact information, and skills as part of a two day capstone project for their Project Management training program. Now, volunteers can sign up online, and Food Bank staff can find volunteers with skills they need. The Food Bank relies on facilities, equipment, and vehicles to run a smooth operation to help those in need. When they break, food stops flowing. This database will help us reach out to skilled volunteers when we have an urgent need. Thank you Jan, Jon, Leo, Marye, and Nick!
If you or your company are willing to donate your time and skills to keeping us running, please go to our “volunteer” page and complete the online form. As need for services arise, we will get in contact with you.
Volunteers for general Food Bank work are encouraged to sign up here also, we will see you!
We are honored to receive a donation in memory of Marjorie Schweiger, who recently passed away.
Join us at the 8th annual Show & Shine car show on Sunday, August 9, 2015!
Total proceeds from the past seven Show & Shine for Hunger annual events have provided the Food Bank with cash contributions in excess of $248,000. Recently, our Executive Director, William Kitchen, announced that with those funds we have been able to “meet the nutritional needs of the Tri-Cities region even though the number of recipients has been growing at an annual rate of about 15% per year. The Show & Shine for Hunger event has become an important activity to us in meeting this ever-expanding need.”
