Individual Volunteers

Individual volunteers looking to sign up should fill out our volunteer application form as well as contact Tara to set up an orientation.


Group Volunteers

At the Food Bank we welcome a variety of groups to volunteer. Opportunities exist for corporate groups, churches, service groups, schools and others to help in a variety of ways. Volunteer shifts are flexible and can be arranged through the group liaison and Tara.

Note: Group coordinators please contact Tara to discuss options for your volunteers.

Student Volunteers

At the Food Bank we offer volunteer positions for students to obtain their 40 hours for graduation. Positions can be limited due to the number of students looking to help out and the time of year. If you’re interested in helping out please keep in mind we do have a lot of students looking to volunteer with limited space, not all students will be accepted.
