Attention Volunteers:

Until further notice, all volunteers MUST wear face coverings, use hand sanitizer, and practice social distancing to the extent possible while they are here.


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 meaningful work experiences and increase our human resource and service capability through volunteer involvement.
