TruPath's Experience Volunteering at St. Mary's Food Bank:

The TruPath team has volunteered at St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance several times. Each time, our team walks away feeling inspired, humbled, and exhausted (in a good way, of course)! We choose to continue participating in the emergency food box pack and sort. Overall, this opportunity is great for large groups. Teams divvy up responsibilities and execute packing food boxes with a variety of items. As each box moves down the line, it transforms into a balanced meal for disadvantaged individuals and families. Not only is the food bank staff helpful but the food bank also has such a positive atmosphere!
