Volunteering at the Food Bank was super fun! We boxed over 5000 pounds of food. The experience was great, and I will be back for sure!

The afternoon shift is just as fun and interactive as the early shift. I really enjoy watching the team members there because they are as funny and enthusiastic after all the time they put it! They are inspiring just like the work they do!

Very enjoyable experience. I was able to gain a variety of knowledge from the Food Bank, with also gaining a great experience that was able to remind me of how each of us can make an impact. Will definitely do again!

Today I volunteered and the Central Texas Food Bank (formerly Capital Area Food bank of Texas) by helping sort dry food items that would be shipped to local distribution centers in the Austin area. This was a fun volunteering event and I enjoyed having the opportunity to give back to my community. In all, the group I volunteered with helped to provide over 7000 meal for families in the Austin area.

Checked donated food to make sure it wasn't expired. Went with my organization, Humanity First (an organization at the University of Texas at Austin).

I helped sort through food items in order to be able to determine whether the food was good to be processed and delivered to the Austin community. We helped sort the food into boxes in order to have them sent out in an orderly fashion. A couple of thousand pounds of food were sorted, providing over a thousand meals for people in the central Texas community.

I always enjoy volunteering at the Food Bank. The staff is amazing! We inspected and sorted donations. Although it doesn't sound like much, it actually is harder than expected. However, being able to contribute to this cause is wonderful. I will definitely be returning to the Capital Area Food Bank.
