Volunteers are invaluable to the Food Bank. Without the 60,000 plus hours of volunteer help each year, the NTFB would be unable to provide food to the hundreds of thousands of hungry North Texans it currently serves.
Top 7 ways to volunteer at the NTFB:
1. Warehouse activities: Sort incoming food donations Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 3:30 p.m. Click here for a map to our warehouse.
