City Food Bank Each year, the City Food Bank gives food to more than 36, 000 hungry people in our county. Some are lowincome families. Others are unemployed. Still others have had their homes destroyed by fires. As a volunteer, you will first greet people who bring food to the Food Bank. Next, you will help unload the food from cars and write down what was given. Then your biggest job will be to sort food and pack it into boxes. To participate, you will need to complete a half-hour training class that will count toward your service hours.
