Volunteering

NOTICE:  During COVID-19 we have suspended New Volunteer Orientation & Recruitment.  We hope to return to normal operations in the near future.  Thanks for your interest & stay tuned.

The Food Center is a 100% Volunteer staffed & run, Donor funded & supported, Community based charity.  

The majority of the work (sacking groceries, sorting food, stocking shelves, interviewing and serving clients) occurs during the normal operating hours.  Some limited volunteer opportunities (unloading the Food Bank truck at 7:00 AM every Monday morning) occur at other hours.

We are most interested in people who can volunteer on a regular basis (one day per week or twice per month).  However, we do accept short-term volunteers on an as needed basis and on a first come first accepted basis.  When we have a full shift of regular volunteers we may turn away short-term volunteers. 

Please contact us for opportunities and details.
