- Corporate team-building: The FoodBank provides a unique opportunity for corporate groups to give back to the community while building team spirit. The work areas within our warehouse in Hillside are structured to provide to corporate volunteers a framework in which communication, problem-solving, decision-making and teamwork are achieved during time spent working together.
