During Duke Alums Engage week, volunteer with us at the Food Bank of Western New York to help those in need of one of life's most necessary commodities—food. It's easy, fun, and volunteers make it possible for us to get the work done. Volunteers are essential at all levels of food bank operations, from sorting and repackaging food to helping at fundraising events.

We'll be sorting food items by expiration dates, so if you need "readers" please bring them or else you're going to have a hard time reading the labels. You are encouraged to bring some food items to donate, such as some of their most needed items:
 

  • cereal
  • peanut butter or other nut butters
  • canned tuna and chicken
  • canned soups, stews and chili
  • canned fruits and vegetables
  • beans, canned or dry
  • boxed macaroni and cheese
  • pasta and rice
  • spaghetti sauce
  • baby food, formula, and diapers
