Join the fight against hunger!

Volunteer Recognition

Daily Bread if very grateful to all the volunteer groups who came in to enjoy a volunteering experience, as well as all of our amazing individual volunteers who work so hard every day. Here are some of the top organizations that came in during the past year, supporting our efforts to get food to those in need.

Last year, we had over 10,000 volunteers work over 100,000 hours. That’s equivalent to 56 full-time employees working 35 hours per week for the entire year. Volunteers helped sort over four million pounds of food. They also helped answer calls at reception, welcome and register volunteers, work in our community garden, help in the kitchen and assist with our annual food bank client survey. Thank you to each and every volunteer that gave their time to help fight hunger.
