River Bend Foodbank needs your time and talent. Both are vital to our mission of ensuring that no one in our service area goes hungry. We cannot do this without you!
For the health and safety of all our volunteers, guests, agency partners, and staff, in-person volunteer options will be limited for the remainder of 2020. Please contact Belinda Mielenhausen to arrange group volunteer opportunities.
Important Volunteer Information:
please register in advance so we can plan for your help. If you need to change or cancel your volunteer slot, let us know – we rely on knowing who will be on-hand to make sure enough food goes where people are in need. Please contact Belinda Mielenhausen for questions or registration changes.
For your safety, only closed-toed shoes are allowed in the warehouse.
Eating and gum chewing is prohibited in the warehouse.
Due to health and safety guidelines, water (must be in a plastic bottle) is the only beverage allowed in the warehouse.
River Bend Foodbank relies on the generosity of its supporters to help fight hunger in eastern lowa and western Illinois. Each year, over 22 million meals are missed in our service area. Your financial support is essential to bridging the meal gap in our community.
Volunteers are crucial to the operation of River Bend Foodbank. Without volunteers, it would not be possible to collect, sort, and repack all of the food that comes through our warehouse every day as well as distribute food through our various programs. Together we can solve hunger™.
If you or a loved one is hungry, please let us help you. Use our website to locate a food pantry or meal site in your area.
