Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!

At Second Harvest, we believe EVERYONE DESERVES TO EAT. We are the primary source of food for a network of more than 460 food assistance programs across an 18-county service area.

Each day of the week, we move 37 tons of food through our warehouses and out to where it is needed most. We could not do what we do without the support of wonderful volunteers like you who join us each day to help sort and repack donated food. Together, we help to make individual lives better and our communities healthy and hunger-free.

Upcoming opportunities to help out at our volunteer center are listed below.  If you have any trouble signing up, please contact us at [email protected].

If you need verification of your volunteer hours, please call to be preapproved!

If you are not going to be able to make on your selected day, please cancel your reservation by removing your name from the signup list so others may sign up to volunteer and we can plan accordingly.

Thank you so much for volunteering with Second Harvest!
