18,000 volunteers. More than 100,000 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 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 abuzz 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. Our most-needed volunteer opportunities are listed below. You can also learn about new opportunities by downloading this flier, or by signing up for our volunteer newsletter.
