Opportunities for Children and Families
Volunteers aged 16 and up may sign up directly for any volunteer shift. Youth between the ages of 11 and 15 are welcome to volunteer when accompanied by an adult leader.

Are you bilingual?
Bilingual volunteers are needed to help us communicate more effectively with non-English speaking clients. If you are bilingual, have strong communication skills and a personable, positive attitude, there are ways to help in different areas of the Food Bank. Express an interest in bilingual volunteer opportunities and someone from the Food Bank will contact you.
