Community Harvest Food Bank has relationships with many local constituents, volunteers, and service organizations. This week, future sailors who serve in the United States Navy volunteered their time at the food bank sorting and packaging food for the hungry. Because of their efforts, 17,500 meals will be distributed to children, seniors, Veterans, and families throughout the service area.
“These brave young men and women are not only serving their country, but are serving the hungry in our community,” said Rachel Klein, Community Harvest Volunteer Coordinator. “I was so honored to meet and work with these remarkable people.”
With the holiday season fast approaching, food distribution programs are experiencing higher demand. Volunteer groups like the individuals serving with the United States Navy have helped Community Harvest meet the increased need within the community.
Community Harvest Food Bank continues its outreach to local volunteers seeking to serve their neighbors in need. Individuals and groups interested in volunteering should visit www.CHFB.org or contact Rachel Klein for more information at (260) 447-3696.
