I had the pleasure of volunteering at Three Square Food Bank this week. I assisted with packing almost 11k boxed lunches for the Kid Cafe Program here in Southern Nevada.
Three Square works to end hunger in Southern Nevada by providing meals to hungry people throughout the community. This organizations reaches, Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark Counties.
Three Square does more than collect food. Their programs support a food banking warehouse, food rescue initiative and ready-to-eat meals. They work with approximately 1,300 community partners including charities and non-profits, schools and feeding sites.
During my visit, all of the volunteers helped box lunches for the after school meal program. Over 60% of people in Southern Nevada go hungry everyday. This after school meal box makes sure that students have a full stomach before bed.
We worked from 9AM – 12PM boxing as many lunches as we could. Eat box received a salad, fruit and a sandwich.
Three Square offers so many opportunities for individuals to give back. Their Volunteer Activities include:
- sorting and repacking food
- filling backpacks with food for the weekend
- boxing meals for schools and senior programs
