Food Bank Volunteers

Channel One Regional Food Bank depends heavily on volunteers help distribute food to those experiencing food insecurity in our region. There are many opportunities to sort, organize, and repack food.

Those interested in volunteering in the food shelf will need additional training. Please inquire to David Steenhoek for details on food shelf training requirements. davidsteenhoek@channel-one.org or 507-424-1705

Food Bank volunteers must be at least 14 years old, and those under the age of 16 must have an adult with them at all times. Scheduling for individual volunteers is available online. Shifts are typically 2 hours.
