Jenks Food Bank – Trader Joe’s Sorting

Hey Y’all!

There is a new volunteer opportunity at the Jenks Food Bank. Every Tuesday and Friday at 4:00 for about an hour, the Jenks Food Bank needs volunteers to show up at their location and help sort food that they have picked up from Trader Joe’s.

You can just show up to the Jenks Food Bank at those times and no weekly commitment is necessary.

Email me at foodbank@jenkskeyclub.org if you have any questions.
