Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Shared Harvest Foodbank and helping us battle hunger right here at home.

 

We have several different ways you can engage as a volunteer. There are a variety of standard projects and special projects throughout the year. The project you will be doing will depend on the needs of Shared Harvest and the community at that time. Before you begin, training will be provided about how each activity is performed and general food safety guidelines.

 

If you are looking to sign up a group, we would love to have your Company, Church or School join us. 

 

Contact Trisha Unwin, Community Engagement Manager to learn more.

Volunteer Application Forms

Some things to know before you volunteer:

Minors:

We welcome and encourage youth volunteers, 10-17 years old. As an integral part of our Mission, "to raise awareness about the impact of poverty", we provide opportunities for young people to participate in sorting, packing and distributing food to assist our neighbors in need.

 

  • 10-14 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian

  • 15-17 years old, may come unaccompanied with the signed consent of a legal parent or guardian (see link for consent form above)

Before you arrive:

  • Please wear closed toed shoes and seasonally appropriate clothing. 

  • If you are coming in a group, consider carpooling as parking is limited.

  • Please be sure to complete our volunteer application and corresponding forms upon your first visit, if it is your first time serving with us. 

Please note that we cannot guarantee working on any specific project during volunteer sessions. The activities are decided based on the the communities needs at that time.
