Zurich volunteers at River City Food Bank


Volunteers from Zurich 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. In addition, the team from Zurich collected canned foods all week that were donated to River City Food Bank, helping to fulfill the constant need to feed more families in our community.

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 Zurich for offering employees a chance to give back, to all individual volunteers from Zurich for taking time to make a difference and to River City Food Bank for providing this meaningful opportunity for volunteers.
