Homebound Deliveries Drivers (Ages 18+)

Homebound deliveries help feed our most vulnerable neighbors in need by volunteering for a contactless delivery shift. Donate your gas mileage and stay safe from behind the wheel; drop off pre-packaged goods for our homebound or immunocompromised clients. This is also a great opportunity to bring excited hunger fighters under the age of 14 to experience service to our community

Sort food in our Warehouse (Ages 17+)

Get a behind-the-scenes look at how donated food travels through our warehouse and delivered directly to over 150 distribution sites of community food pantries, homeless shelters, community mobile markets, and homebound residents most in need. You’ll inspect, sort, clean, box and prepare donations for distribution. We welcome volunteers over the age of 17 into our warehouse who are comfortable with walking, standing, bending, stooping, kneeling, lifting, and carrying items weighing in excess of 30 pounds. Please note that mask, gloves and comfortable close-toed shoes, must be worn at all times within our facility.
