On August 5, Henry+Horne had a team of volunteers go to the Desert Mission Food Bank to help make hygiene packs, meat packs, bread packs and sort other food items for distribution to the community. The group was able to make a huge difference by sorting approximately 3,000 pounds of donated items into distributable packs. These packs will help the food bank and those who volunteer there become more efficient and effective with their time and limited resources.
Desert Mission Food Bank serves a wide variety of needs from food to hygiene to helping feed family pets. The food bank is designed in a market format so that clients can “shop” as they would in a regular grocery store. Desert Mission also tries to maintain a high-level of customer service by having volunteers guide clients through the market helping and assisting wherever possible. They offer several free and reduced cost food programs, nutrition education and resource and referral services. Their goal is to provide the necessary tools and resources to help their clients achieve food security.
