Our time is a gift to hungry kids, seniors and others who may not have enough to eat. Volunteers at the Houston Food Bank produce the equivalent of a meal a minute while helping to sort, process and pack food. Not to mention - it's fun! As we kick off 2018, join the William & Mary Houston Alumni Chapter in giving the gift of time and volunteering at the Houston Food Bank. Additional details and instructions provided by the Food Bank are included below.

You must register for this event.
Our group name is William & Mary Alumni Association - Houston.

Volunteers MUST be at least 6 years old and supervised by parent or guardian throughout the shift. Please plan to arrive at least fifteen minutes before your scheduled volunteer shift so you can check in, receive instructions and start on time. If you arrive after the start of your shift, you may have to wait up to 30 minutes for orientation and assignment. If members of the group arrive late, it is not guaranteed they will be able to join us in our assigned project area. DESCRIPTION OF DUTIES: Varies with the makeup volunteers for shift. Most of the projects at the warehouse involve inspection, sorting, and repackaging of donated food items for community distribution. PARKING INFORMATION: If space permits it, you may park in the front parking lot, but in the event of a large volunteer turnout, you may be directed to our overflow lot located behind the building. ATTIRE INFORMATION: Closed-toe shoes REQUIRED - smashed toes are no fun, so the Food Bank strongly enforces this safety precaution. Casual dress, long pants (preferred), t-shirt with sleeves.
