Join the fight against hunger!

Volunteer Recognition

Daily Bread is 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 94,980 hours. That’s equivalent to 52 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, 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.

2015 Volunteer of the Year


Judy Crouch has been a dedicated Reception Volunteer since 2008. Judy has been very supportive by helping other departments with all their administrative work. Judy is a very welcoming, kind and cooperative person. Most staff are so happy to see Judy’s joyful presence on that last day of the week; therefore she is known as the “Joyful Friday Lady”. In addition to normal Reception duties, Judy is an affectionate, motherly figure to many us here at DB. Judy is very a supportive, helpful, sympathetic and considerate person who treats everyone with decency and respect.
