Volunteer Opportunities

Join us in alleviating hunger and malnutrition in our community!

We love our volunteers!  In 2015, we had a total of 4,637 visits, by about 150 volunteers totaling over 17,000 volunteer hours.  We can’t do it without you!

We offer many diverse ways to become part of our dedicated team.  Without our volunteers, it would not be possible for our small staff to serve over 4,000 community members every week!  Check out these volunteer opportunities:
