Spend three hours packing food in our warehouse to provide tens of thousands of meals for our community.
Nearly 17,000 volunteers. More than 103,000 hours. Every year, you ensure that children, adults, and seniors in Alameda County know where their next meal will come from. We couldn’t be more grateful.
We urgently need more helping hands this summer to ensure that the large quantities of incoming produce get out the door — and into the community!
(No prior orientation is required. All volunteers must be at least 10 years of age with at least one adult volunteer accompanying up to 5 youth.)
We serve an immense need: 1 in 5 of our neighbors in Alameda County accesses our services. And we can’t do the work we do without volunteers.
Five (sometimes six) days a week, our warehouse and office are a buzz with activity. Whether packing food in our warehouse, staffing our Emergency Food Helpline, assisting in our office, or helping with events and other projects, your contributions as a volunteer are a critical part of our efforts.
