MOORE, Okla.- The recently opened Moore Food Resource Center is facing a shortage of volunteers to operate its new client choice-based resource center.

"We are in urgent need of volunteers to donate their time and help fight hunger in Oklahoma,” said Rodney Bivens, executive director of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

The food resource center serves close to 50 people a day in its new facility focused on the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and its new concept of a client choice food pantry. 

Volunteers at the Moore Food Resource Center will assist with a variety of tasks, including: serving as client shopper helpers, assisting with loading and unloading vehicles, sorting and shelving food items, and cleaning. They are also expected to provide excellent customer service on behalf of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, and must be at least 16-years-old to participate at this location. 

For volunteers already assisting at the Moore Food Resource Center, the experience has been extremely rewarding. 

"It is really humbling," said volunteer Sheree Germany. "I get to talk to them, and help them out. I feel like I get to be apart of something that gives them a sense of independency. Even though they are coming for help, they are still able to choose and get things that they need."

The Moore Food Resource Center 2635 N. Shields. For more information on the Moore Food Resource Center or on becoming a volunteer, contact Clay Diers at cdiers@regionalfoodbank.org or 405-600-3186.
