Volunteers are needed to sort and pack food at our Oakland warehouse

To minimize the risk of exposure from COVID-19 we are limiting the number of unduplicated visitors to our facility and are seeking volunteers (ages 18+) who can commit to joining us for full days, at least once a week, for at least 5 weeks. August volunteer opportunities at the Food Bank are now full.

We will need an even greater number of volunteers in September.
Please register now: September Food Bank Volunteering.

Please, NO DROP-INS.

For questions and information about volunteer needs at our partner organizations, please email volunteer@accfb.org.

Important: New Covid-19 safety rules.

  • Volunteers must be age 18 or older.
  • We encourage volunteers to follow the CDC recommendation that populations at higher risk of severe COVID-19 illness (age 65+ and those with underlying medical conditions) continue to self-isolate, but we will not be barring them from volunteer service.

All volunteers will be required to:

  • Complete a daily health survey
  • Adhere to distancing guidelines at all times
  • Wear self-provided face coverings that meet CDC standards and food bank-provided gloves
  • Wash hands frequently, assist in facility sanitizing and follow all CDC recommendations.

Warehouse Food Sorting

We need 50 volunteers a day to meet community need. A day of work means thousands of meals for neighbors. Volunteers will sort fresh produce and prepare bags with shelf stable pantry items for distribution throughout the county. The work takes place in our large Oakland warehouse and can be quite physical. Volunteers should be prepared to walk and stand for up to 3 hours at a time and to lift and carry up to 15 pounds.

Volunteer in the Community

Help nourish Alameda County neighbors by spending a few hours at a local pantry run by one of our many agency partners. Volunteers are needed to sort and pack food, load delivery trucks and assist with weekly distributions. For current opportunities email: volunteer@accfb.org.
