Position #: 2113
OrganizationLethbridge Food Bank
Position: Target Hunger Volunteer
Location: 1016-2nd Avenue South
Impact Statement: "Acknowledging the disparity in the availability of resources among Canadians and recognizing that while food banks will be needed for the foreseeable future, they are only a temporary response for those living in poverty and believing in the principles outlined above the mission of the Lethbridge Food Bank Society is to meet the immediate food needs of applicants in Lethbridge and the surrounding area, while working toward long term solutions to hunger and poverty."
Description: Target Hunger is the annual food drive done every June, where volunteers deliver and pick up the yellow bags to each household in town, requesting community members to fill up the bag with most wanted food items for our local food banks.

Volunteers are needed to deliver empty bags between June 1-7 to houses within a prescribed area, then return on Saturday, June 8th to pick them back up and deliver them to the Food Bank.
Training Details: Detailed instructions are included with your packet of bags for delivery.
Are you a youth group or service club leader? Or maybe you just want to help stop hunger in our community. Maybe you’re a business owner that’s looking for a way to give back. Whatever your circumstance is, we’re looking for YOU to be a part of the annual Target Hunger food drive that takes place on the second Saturday of June.
Working Conditions: This year our goal is to raise 100,000 pounds of food! And the more groups we have to help out, the more food we can gather for our local food banks. In Lethbridge, the food is equally split between Lethbridge and Interfaith Food Banks.

The Target Hunger Organizing Committee is hoping to involve as many citizens of Lethbridge in this initiative, and is hoping to connect with local community groups to encourage support for the project. We will be looking for help from community organizations to promote the City Wide Food Drive to their membership, and will also be looking for volunteers to help sort all of the food we collect on the day of the event. Whether your group is able to be actively involved in the food drive or willing to help us to get the word out, we can use your help!
