Fundraisers and Community Events
Raise money for the Food Bank by recycling. Bring us your (clean) recyclables. We send them to Terracycle. Terracycle makes a donation to the Food Bank. It’s that simple.
We are accepting five types of recyclables right now:
Recyclables can be dropped off at our Comstock Park branch between 8:30 and 4:30, Monday through Friday, and between 8:30 and 12:30 on Saturday. Call Andrew Steiner at 616-432-6964 if you have questions.
TGI Friday’s in Kentwood is hosting a flair bartending competition where mixologists will show off their skills to benefit the Food Bank. Specialty drinks and other prizes will be auctioned off, and DJ Sean Boney will supply the beat.
The event kicks off at 7:30 p.m. TGI Friday’s is located at 3345 28th Street SE in Kentwood, near Woodland Mall.
The busiest times at the Food Bank — the times when we could use your help the most — are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons. You’ll help us sort food and household goods from some of our top donors. Because it involves some bending and lifting, this opportunity is ideal for able-bodied volunteers 12 and up. Youth groups, college clubs, and corporate service teams are welcome. See our volunteer calendar for available dates.
Help sort donated food in our warehouse between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on alternating Saturdays. This opportunity is perfect for youth groups, college clubs, and corporate service outings. Groups of up to 25 are welcome. See our volunteer calendar for available dates.
