Great Plains Food Bank

The Great Plains Food Bank needs volunteers every day to help sort, label, and repack donated and bulk foods, assemble boxes and bags for special programs, provide administrative support, and assist during special events. Our goal is to provide the best possible volunteer experience and prepare our volunteers to become outspoken hunger advocates in our community. When you donate your time to the Great Plains Food Bank, you become a partner in the fight against hunger in North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota.

Fargo-Moorhead Area Directors of Volunteer Service

We are seeing an increase in immediate volunteer needs within the community and are compiling a list of opportunities. https://fmdovs.wordpress.com/covid…/volunteer-opportunities/

Emergency Food Pantry

They are needing additional volunteers to package their food baskets, which are distributed daily. As an operation, they’ve had to modify their process and have lost some volunteers, as many current volunteers are over 65 and need to stay home. Please contact contact@emergencyfoodpantry.com  if you’d like details about how/when to volunteer at the Emergency Food Pantry.

Churches United

They put out a request to have sack lunches assembled for their clients. Megan Lewis is accepting financial donations to purchase these food items and will be assembling them at Square One Kitchen. If you would like to make a donation to purchase the food for the lunches, send it to Megan Lewis via PayPal (paypal.me/milkmadecatering).

Little Free Pantries

If you want more information on how to start this up or if you know of a location to do one, contact: Kayla.L.Carlson@ndsu.edu 

Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive ,which letter carriers host, was postponed due to COVID-19. Local letter carriers are hosting their own food drive to try and offset loss in food donations. This is a virtual food drive which will be distributed based on the donor's zip code. You can find the donation site here.

Meals on Wheels 

Meals on Wheels is a program that delivers meals to senior citizens in your communities. North Dakota could use some assistance in filling volunteer spots: specifically in North, West, and South Fargo. Volunteers schedules are flexible and they typically work 45-60 minutes.
