Bored at Home? Volunteer at the Food Bank for Larimer County
If you've run out of Netflix shows to watch, rooms to clean, or are just plain bored of being at home, consider volunteering at the Food Bank for Larimer County.
The food bank needs volunteers now more than ever, especially as families become more dependent on it due to COVID-19 financial struggles.
Volunteers can help with organization, curbside food pickup, and more — all while safely socially distancing.
"We'll need this type of help in the long-term. We can always use more assistance," said Paul Donnelly, the Communications Director for the food bank, in our "Tuned In to NoCo" interview. "It's really a great time. You'd be surprised at how much fun people can have at six and ten feet away."
Volunteers are considered essential, meaning that you would be allowed to leave your home in order to help at the food bank.
If you want to volunteer, you can sign up here. For those who want to help but would rather stay at home, donations are also possible.
The food bank has had to change their schedule and their distribution methods, but they are now offering curbside pickups during select hours.
The facility is also working to help children who can no longer get access to the lunches they received from school. Students in need can get grab-and-go lunches at these three elementary school locations.
