Sep 06, 2019 09:28PM

Community Action Services and Food Bank, which serves people in Utah, Wasatch and Summit counties, has an immediate need for volunteers to cover regular shifts in the food bank, Monday through Friday.

The agency needs volunteers to commit to regular hours for at least three months. It needs people from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday. Its greatest volunteer need is in the morning and between 2 and 4 p.m.

Volunteers at the food bank, 815 S. Freedom Blvd., take clients through the food pantry and instruct them on what they can take.

“People in Utah are so generous with their time and money,” said Daniel Fillmore, volunteer coordinator at Community Action Services and Food Bank. “We need your help now to keep our food bank and food pantry running smoothly, and to help people in need in our community.”

For more information about the food bank or to volunteer, contact Daniel Fillmore at [email protected] or (801) 691-5220.
