Volunteer at Second Harvest Food Bank

Volunteers play an essential role in the operations of Second Harvest and we could not do what we do without the help of thousands of volunteers each year.  Last year alone, volunteers donated over 12,650 hours of service and repacked more than 1 Million LBS of food and grocery products, packed thousands of backpcks, mobile food pantry boxes and senior food boxes.

Volunteer opportunities are availble for groups up to 45 people and individuals in our Volunteer Work Center.  Hours are available to fit every schedule from 10am until 7:30pm, Monday - Thursday and the first Saturday of each month. 

Volunteer Opportunities Include:

  • Repack: Sorting, inspecting, relabeling or repacking food in our Repack Room.
  • BackPack, Senior & Mobile Food Pantry Boxes: Packing bags and boxes for distribution to famlies and children in our Clean Room.
  • Office: Assist with filing, data entry, mailings and other administrative activities.
  • Special Events / Projects: Support staff during events, activities, campaigns, farrmer's markets and food drives.
