It's a great opportunity to get staff, board members, family, friends and the community to unite and make an impact!

West Texas Food Bank Warehouse Sorting and Processing:

In order to distribute these donations before they expire, we need to sort and process them to ensure that they are safe for distribution!

Duties may include labeling cans, packing bags of food and household items, sanitizing packages and checking for expiration dates, opened packages and spoilage.
