Volunteer

Volunteer opportunities exist in many areas at the Food Bank, including repacking bulk foods in the warehouse, packing boxes for our programs, office tasks, sorting product, stocking shelves, etc. Our goal is to provide a meaningful work experience and increase our human resource and service capability through volunteer involvement.

Most volunteer opportunities are available during regular weekday hours (Monday-Friday 7am-12pm and Monday-Thursday 1pm-3pm). Please call ahead to check on the current volunteer schedule. Organizations and groups may occasionally schedule an evening or Saturday for volunteering. Please call at least two weeks in advance to schedule or arrange this with the food bank if the group cannot work during regular hours of operation.
