CORE Young Professionals

CORE is made up of motivated, energetic young professionals interested in growing their professional network while helping feed those struggling with hunger in our area. We hope that you will join us in 2016 for various volunteer projects and opportunities to learn more about the Foodbank. Volunteer projects may include sorting, inspecting and repacking various food items in our warehouse as well as calling and writing to thank our donors. Closed-toe shoes are required in the warehouse.
