What can we expect when we arrive?

Volunteer groups at the Food Bank Warehouse are asked to assist with sorting food donations from boxes and bins into our 19 different categories. These categories of food are based on food type, nutrition, and quantity, for our emergency hamper components. Think of it as reverse shopping; matching food items to signs on a shelf and stocking that shelf.
