Volunteer

Our volunteers give generously of their time to make Food Backpacks 4 Kids effective in our community.  You may inquire about volunteer opportunities at: info@foodbackpacks4kids.org

Food Packaging

We often receive bulk food donations such as rice and oatmeal. These commodities are repacked to make backpack friendly baggies of the food for the kids to take home.

Backpack Packing

We currently are packing at three sites. Packers meet on Wednesday morning for several hours to complete the process of filling the backpacks with predetermined food.

Inventory Takers

We are often required to maintain inventory or check expiration dates.

Events

Food Backpacks 4 Kids, like most non-profits, has to continually fund raise. We are in need of individuals who like to work on planning both small and large events from conception through clean-up.

Summer Lunch Program

Each summer FB4K provides lunch three times a week to families in our community. We need volunteers to help cook, organize, lead activities for the kids, and many other tasks.

Donation Station Monitors

We have multiple donation station sheds located around the greater Gig Harbor area. We need individuals to regularly check in on the sheds, collect donations, and report any issues with the sites.

Driver

As we develop programs, we will need drivers for our van to transport food and backpacks as well as transport children during our Summer Lunch Program.

 

Clerical Support

Our office needs basic clerical support. A recipe card creator/producer is much needed as is help with social media.

Basic Handyman Chores

We often need things moved, heavy boxes lifted, shelves built, etc.Our volunteers give generously of their time to make Food Backpacks 4 Kids effective in our community. You may inquire about volunteer opportunities at: info@foodbackpacks4kids.org
