The West Texas Food Bank needs your help to fight hunger! Volunteerism is the heartbeat of the West Texas Food Bank. Just a couple of hours of volunteering can make a lasting impact. We need you to help us continue our mission of fighting hunger.
Last year, WTFB distributed over 5 million pounds of food to 19 West Texas counties. Over 2,400 volunteers contributed 11,652 hours of volunteer time. That is the equivalent of $267,996, or an average of $23 per volunteer hour.
Before distribution, the food was sorted, processed, and packed, often by the loving hands of a WTFB volunteer. WTFB can accommodate volunteer groups of all sizes, from families and individuals to large groups. Volunteers will be asked to participate in tasks that include sorting incoming donations and unsalable items, and packaging emergency boxes.
Volunteers must be 15 years or older to volunteer at the Food Bank without a parent or guardian. Children 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult at a 1:1 ratio. We require a two-hour volunteering minimum.
