  • The Cortland and McIntosh levels are earned based on the hours served in 1 year, while the JoAnn Pike Volunteer Service Award is awarded to volunteers who have completed 500 or more hours in their time with the food bank.
  • Volunteer hours are eligible starting January 1, 2021, and will be assessed quarterly.
  • Volunteer eligibility for these awards will be confirmed through recorded hours on the volunteer database.
  • Hours will not be included for hours required for court, a compensated job training program, or national service programs.
