Interested in volunteering?

To make this program a success, we need plenty of volunteers to help pick up that food that is donated and deliver it to our agencies. Volunteers will sign up for three-hour on-call shifts, during which time they will be notified by Food Bank staff when a food pick up and delivery in their local area is available. They will pick up the food and deliver that food using best food safety practices and great customer service.

Volunteer must have a valid driver’s license and insurance on their vehicle and must attend a short food safety training course.
