Volunteers are the lifeblood of LifeNet4Families | Cooperative Feeding Program. We could never accomplish what we do without them. Today and throughout the year, close to 1000 volunteers give of themselves in service to the hungry and homeless in important various ways: serving meals to the homeless in our Community Kitchen; preparing and distributing emergency food boxes through our Food Pantry and Drive-Thru; organizing food and other types of collection drives, making sandwiches for the homeless, advocating for the hungry and raising awareness throughout the community; and much, much more.
