Volunteer with MEND!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with MEND!

Here you'll find ways to help support member pantries by sorting, packing, shelving, loading, and unloading food and other essentials. You'll also be able to help with our newest program, MEND on the Move, through shifts at free fresh food markets and prepping food for home deliveries.

Just click on the sign up button to select a volunteer opportunity (or several!) that works best for you - and please check back often as this form is regularly updated.  Thank you!
