April is National Volunteer Month— people are the fuel behind the organizations that make up the Food Bank for Westchester's distribution engine. Without the commitment of people - our volunteers and all the crusaders against hunger who are helping every day - the job could not get done. This month is the perfect opportunity to volunteer and help Westchester families, children, and seniors facing hunger.
Find ways to donate time and get involved. Together we can create a hunger-free Westchester.
Volunteer Appreciation Month
April is Volunteer Appreciation Month, dedicated to honoring all of the volunteers in our community as well as encouraging the continuation of
volunteerism. We would not be able to do all that we do without the help of our incredible volunteer base! Last year, we had over 9,000 volunteers provide over 20,000 hours helping us repackage food to send to those in need in our communities!
