Volunteers are at the heart of what we do

Our volunteers play a vital role in helping us achieve our mission of providing food to our neighbors facing hunger. 

Whether it’s sorting, packing, or distributing food – your effort makes a difference in our community!

  • Office and clerical work

Volunteer Groups

Share the Experience Together

Make a bigger impact together as a team and organize a volunteer experience for your coworkers, friends, family, or church! 

The Food Bank can accommodate groups of up to 25 people. Volunteer groups can sort food donations, assemble and pack food boxes, or assist at one of our distributions.

Contact us if you are interested in hosting a group of 10 or more. We require 4 weeks advance notice to schedule. 

Youth Group Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering can have a life-long effect on kids and teenagers. We believe it is one of the best ways to connect children to the community they live in.

We welcome schools, families, and faith organizations to schedule group sessions for kids age 12 and up to support our neighbors. We require 4 weeks advance notice to schedule groups.

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience, we kindly request at least one adult chaperone to accompany every group of eight.
