Court-Ordered Community Service

If you are required to serve hours in conjunction with a court order, please read our instructions for court-ordered community service and submit an online request form

The Food Bank has a limited number of volunteer opportunities for those seeking to fulfill court-ordered community service. We only accept those wishing to serve court-ordered community service hours for non-violent offenses. Court-ordered community service volunteers are approved on a case-by-case basis as openings permit. In order to request volunteer hours for your court-ordered community service, you are required to read our policy and submit an online request form

Signatures for Court-Issued Paperwork

If you have paperwork issued from the court that you need to have signed verifying you are in the progress of completing your hours or have completed your hours, you will need to schedule a visit to either the Fairfield or Concord warehouse during business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM). Staff on site during distributions or warehouse shifts are not permitted to sign court-issued paperwork.

To schedule a visit for your paperwork signatures, please contact Food Bank Volunteer Services at or (925) 676-7543. Please allow up to 10 business days for a response.

Letters Verifying Volunteer Service

As a registered volunteer, you may access and print your total volunteer hours via your online Volunteer Portal account.

If you need an official letter verifying your service, please read the following:

  • Letters verifying service may be requested only after completing all scheduled hours to fulfill your community service requirements. 
  • Volunteer service verifications requested on official letterhead may be requested by emailing
  • Please allow up to 10 business days, after you have submitted your email request, for processing.
