Bagging Event

Last date was Thursday, April 28th, 2022 from 9:30am to 12:00pm (ET)
This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia has multiple programs that require volunteer assistance in order to accomplish bagging in time for the distribution events. This event may involve building sturdy bags of shelf-stable groceries for our Lena Watkins Senior Brown Bag program or bagging product in preparation of a mobile pantry distribution. Volunteers should expect to lift up to 35 pounds for this event.

Volunteers will be expected to set up tables or pallets for this event and follow the instructions and demonstrations given by Food Bank staff as to how to build the bags properly. Each different type of bagging will include simple instructions and with a menu of the items to provide simple direction. Volunteers will be responsible for stocking and unwrapping product, breaking down any recycle, and cleaning up after the event if time permits.

The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia Volunteer Department cannot guarantee the event listed for this date as volunteer events are based on need; if a different distribution program has an immediate or greater need, the event for the day may change without notice. We thank our volunteers for being flexible and understanding.

As a reminder, we do not offer community service hours for volunteer work.

First-time volunteers should always review our Volunteer Page to review any updates and Covid-19 regulations, as well as to read through our Volunteer Handbook, which covers instructions for events, dress code, programs, and much more.
