Volunteer … We must become the change we want to see.
- Mahatma Ghandi
The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley would not be able to run its operation so effectively if it were not for the support and dedication of hundreds of volunteers who give so selflessly of their time. They are vital to the Food Bank and its mission to feed the hungry. Volunteers include students, seniors, business people, church members, service organizations and others. The Food Bank has many wonderful volunteer opportunities available with flexible hours. Get involved! You can make a difference.
