“…not a day goes by where I don’t see the meaning in it, and what a critical service we are providing

– Judy, Food Bank volunteer

Volunteers Needed!
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 have an ongoing need for individual volunteers to help in our warehouse, offices, Emergency Food Helpline, and for special/seasonal volunteer opportunities. We also need help with skills-based volunteering including bi-lingual and technical skills. If you have questions about individual volunteer opportunities, we encourage you to contact us at volunteer@accfb.org or by calling our volunteer team at 1-510-635-3663 ext. 308.

By volunteering, all individuals agree to adhere to the Food Bank’s policies and guidelines.

Please note: All individual volunteers, except weekend volunteers, must first attend a volunteer orientation at the Food Bank.  No registration is required for the orientation – just show up!
