Volunteer with Alameda County Community Food Bank!
We have an urgent need for volunteers to help with our COVID-19 response.

As an essential business the food bank remains open to volunteering. Our greatest need is for weekday volunteers (age 18+) who can commit to joining us weekly for full days for at least a month. Learn more about our safety measures for 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.

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.
