April 1, 2017 in Harvest Time Newsletter

April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month, which is 30 days dedicated to recognizing the amazing work that volunteers do all across America.

The help that Ozarks Food Harvest’s volunteers provide is invaluable. If The Food Bank did not have any volunteers, nearly 15 full-time employees would be needed to sort food, pack Senior Food boxes and Weekend Backpacks, assist with events, help distribute food at the Crimson House pantry and mobile pantries, take care of our community garden and help with emergency gleans.

In fiscal year 2016, our volunteers helped provide over four million meals thanks to their support processing food for distribution.

In order to show our deep appreciation, we are working on a display in the Volunteer Center that will honor those who have donated over 1,000 hours of time. This display will be unveiled during National Volunteer Week, April 23-29.

A heartfelt thanks goes to more than 3,900 volunteers who donated their time in fiscal year 2016, and who continue to aid in the fight against hunger. LearnĀ about how to get involved as a volunteer.
