Teens who volunteered at the Central California Food Bank sorted 9,400 pounds of food. The Central California Food Bank is dedicated to ending hunger in Central California. This organization provides food for over 220 local agencies. A small group of men and women started the Community Food Bank in 1920, with a drive to see a change with people struggling with hunger. Volunteers sorted, packed and distributed food. If you are interested in volunteering, check out Volunteer/Central California Food Bank.

Every Neighborhood Partnership (ENP) is a non-profit organization that provides an outlet where students can interact with one another and meet positive role models during the weekend. It also gives volunteers a chance to build a relationship with students. ENP started out as a small sports program but soon changed to a ministry that focused on specific issues, including literacy, mentoring and community outreach.
