Make an Impact on the Community
Food Helpers continues to impact individuals across Washington County. There are numerous ways to get involved, with unlimited volunteer and donation opportunities.
Greater Washington County Food Bank:
Greater Washington County Food Bank's warehouse and pantries are in consistent need of volunteers. This includes activities such as box packing, box distribution, sorting through donated items, and other similar tasks. This is the core division of Food Helpers, so this is where the largest volunteer need exists.
The educational facility at Healthy Habits Training Center currently host a number of events, utilizing the conference space as well as the full instructional kitchen area. Volunteering at HHTC can come in many forms, but mostly focused on those willing to teach a class lead a seminar, or share any skill set with those willing to learn.
Country Thrift Market:
Country Thrift Market's mission is to support the community by providing affordable goods and training while also supporting Greater Washington County Food Bank's fight against food insecurities. Volunteers assist with organizing displays, stocking shelves, assisting customers, and back-end organization of the Thrift Market.
The FARM has volunteer needs in all of its programs, including the orchard, hydroponics, raised beds, and produce fields. We can work with your schedule and experience level to find the best fit for you. Getting involved here typically means wearing clothes for the elements and being directly involved in a hands-on capacity
Financial Donation: Every $1 donated to Food Helpers is allocated towards one of our four divisions. It takes a village, as they say, so make your contribution towards weakening the chain of events that leads to food insecurity today!
Donation of Food and Products: You can donate food individually or hold a food drive (we can help you to coordinate one). Food donations can be dropped off at Food Helpers' warehouse between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Enter at the exterior Atrium and you will be greeted by a Food Helper
