If you would like to pick up donations from local grocery stores and represent the Food Bank to the public, we would love to meet you. You must have a good driving record, be at least 21 years of age, and be able to lift up to 50 pounds. We currently have spots available for drivers, substitute drivers, and driver's assistants (18 years +). We pick up donations 6 days per week, please call for availability.
Students: Middle school volunteers must be accompanied by a parent or older sibling. High school students may serve hours after school on Wednesdays. Because we want to keep our students safe, we require that two adults be present at all times when youth are volunteering. For this reason, we do not allow students to volunteer on Saturdays when we only have one person on site.
Groups: We can accommodate groups, but because of space limitations we must limit size of groups and or work in shifts. For more information, please contact Alissa.
Court Ordered Community Service: Yes, we would be happy to work with you. Please contact Alissa or Jinx for more information and for screening and scheduling.
We do not have minimum shift requirements and are flexible with your schedule.
Alissa Jones, Executive Director
Jinx Singleton, Operations Manager
