The Southeast Ohio Foodbank, a program of Hocking Athens Perry Community Action (HAPCAP), is seeking volunteers to join the fight against hunger in our communities.

Volunteers are a pivotal part of Foodbank operations; operations cannot be done without volunteers. Community members may volunteer as individuals or as groups to assist in various programs. Duties may range from packing food boxes, assisting with direct food distributions, preparing hot meals and more.

Upcoming packing events will be held on Saturday, July 9 and Saturday, July 23 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Every month, the Foodbank distributes nearly 2,000 food boxes to low-income seniors in the community. They often host public packing events to support this program, where volunteers form an assembly line and fill boxes with various shelf-stable food items. Community members may register for these, or any future events, at www.givepulse.com/group/events/294903.
