River City Food Bank gets a visit from Target Southwest Sacramento volunteers


Volunteers from Target Southwest Sacramento came out to volunteer with United Way certified partner River City Food Bank. After learning more about the organization from staff and participating in a brief orientation, volunteers served as personal shoppers for clients, responsible for meeting each new client and taking them through the food line and picking out the appropriate number of food items for their family. Other volunteers worked to sort through donated items and stock the shelves of food to be distributed to families in the coming days. 

River City Food Bank provides three days of nutritional food supply, nutrition education and referral assistance, offering hope to people seeking self reliance. The extra help from volunteers for this busy food bank was certainly appreciated by River City Food Bank staff, regular volunteers and clients. A big thank you to Target for your commitment to giving back to our community, to all individual volunteers from Target Southwest Sacramento for taking time to make a difference and to River City Food Bank for providing this meaningful opportunity for volunteers.
