Volunteer in the Community

Volunteers are needed to sort and pack food, load delivery trucks, and assist with weekly distributions at local pantries run by our agency partners. For current opportunities email: volunteer@accfb.org.

Warehouse Volunteers

Volunteer shifts in our Oakland warehouse are essential to our daily impact. You’ll sort fresh produce, prepare emergency food boxes, and help our agency partners shop and load their cars with food.

Drive-Through Distribution

To safely distribute groceries, we’re operating a contactless drive-through distribution in Oakland three days a week. You’ll help build emergency food boxes, pack fresh produce, and load cars with groceries.

For questions and to learn more about volunteering, please email volunteer@accfb.org.
