The Indian River State College women's basketball team took time this week to volunteer at the Treasure Coast Food Bank.
The women's basketball team spent their afternoon aiding in sorting items into different boxes while to the food bank. Items will then be distributed to local community families on the Treasure Coast. Each team member had a hand in every box as they placed items in them individually and with great care.
Treasure Coast Food Bank (TCFB) was founded in 1989. It is the largest hunger-relief organization and the only Food Bank in our four-county region (Indian River, Martin, St. Lucie, and Okeechobee County). The Food Bank provides 400 very active pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior housing, and low-income day-care centers with large quantities of food from name brand manufactures and USDA commodities on a daily basis. We also operate various mobile food pantries throughout our service area and assist pantries that provide backpacks to hundreds of children on the weekend. The backpacks are disbursed to qualifying children on Friday afternoon by various schools.
Volunteers are invaluable to Community Service and the Treasure Coast Food Bank. Join the mission to alleviate hunger on the Treasure Coast by volunteering at the Food bank.
