Partner Agency Training

The Food Bank is dedicated to providing our partner agencies with a range of nutrition education resources including food safety trainings, workshops teaching healthy behaviors, and food demonstrations. As a benefit of our partnership, the Food Bank makes opportunities for food safety and civil rights training available to our partners.

Food Bank 101
This seminar details the Food Bank's policies, procedures, and resources. It is intended for new coordinators and volunteers but is also open to:

  • Coordinators looking to expand their agency's partnership with the Food Bank.
  • Volunteers as an introduction to the Food Bank's operations.
  • Anyone with questions or an interest in learning more about network resources made available to our partner agencies.

We will cover information on our food ordering process, delivery and pick up policies and procedures, billing invoices and statements, TEFAP requirements and HPNAP grants, and conclude with a tour of the warehouse and mock pantry.
