We have daily volunteer opportunities for individuals or large groups. We have a walk in policy for individuals or groups of 2 or 3 people. You can come on in to 526 High St. Monday thru Friday from 9:00 AM until 2:30 PM. We also have opportunities for larger groups Monday thru Friday from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM. We ask that large groups call to schedule a time to come in to volunteer.
Our 2 ongoing volunteer opportunities are our Senior Box Program and our Veteran's Marketplace. The Senior Box Program is reserved for large groups. When volunteering for the Senior Box Program we will split the group up to have half on one side of the conveyor belt and half on the other as the senior box goes down the conveyor belt you will pack it with food. The link below has some more information on the Senior Box Program. https://seagatefoodbank.org/senior-boxes/
The Veteran's Marketplace supplies veterans and their families with much needed food. There are several tasks that can be done to help with the marketplace such as checking cans for dates, helping set up for the marketplace, packing food bags, and assisting veterans while they "shop" through the marketplace.
We would love to see you come out contact us at 419-244-6996 to get more information today!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About TOLEDO SEAGATE FOOD BANK INC
526 HIGH ST, TOLEDO, OH 43609, US
Our Mission is to enhance the quality of life in Northwest Ohio by relentlessly working to eliminate hunger and improve nutrition. Each month, we collect and distribute fresh produce and packaged food to 428 food pantries, soup kitchens, and programs that feed the hungry in our region. Unlike other programs, SeaGate Food Bank never charges for its services. And since food is not the only need, we continually develop and implement programs to educate, train, support and encourage the underserved in our community.
SeaGate Food Bank is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation and a true grassroots organization. It started in a garage in the mid-1970s and today serves 438 food pantries in eight NW Ohio counties, providing food at no cost to over 130,000 each month. Amazingly, it does this with a full time staff of only 10, but many hundreds of volunteers. It is a truly wonderful group of people.
