Volunteers play a crucial role in our work, especially as FIND’s services remain in high demand amid skyrocketing gas and grocery prices. Groups and individuals are welcome to join us at our warehouse, in our office providing administrative support, or out on-site distributing food throughout the desert region at our Community Mobile Markets.
You can help fight climate change, hunger, and food waste all while serving those in need in our local communities! California Volunteers Office of the Governor and FIND Food Bank are pairing up again to bring the next generation to the frontlines of the problems facing our planet allowing them to become part of the solution.

California Volunteers created the California Climate Action Corps program to advance climate actions that engage community members, cultivate change, and leave a lasting impact. Activities include volunteer engagement, assessment, and education projects. Fellows will assist FIND Food Bank with organic waste and food recovery efforts by participating in projects that will increase volunteer engagement and food recovery efforts.

In 2021, over 2,500 volunteers donated their time to FIND Food Bank totaling over 16,500 service hours – the equivalent of 8 full-time employees, and saving FIND $470,000 in administrative costs with their efforts.
At FIND Food Bank, there is no higher priority than the safety of our volunteers, staff, and the people we serve. We maintain a clean facility and follow the best practices for food safety and COVID safety guidelines. Due to the recent global spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we ask volunteers who have experienced any symptoms of illness in the last 14 days to stay home.
At this time, all volunteer sessions will run as scheduled. See below for new COVID-19 safety protocols.
FIND welcomes anyone aged 16 years and over to volunteer.
Plenty of Ways to Get Involved!
We have opportunities for volunteers ages 14-17 to get involved in the fight against hunger. Check out our volunteer opportunities to learn more.
