Second Harvest Food Bank



MARCH 26, 2020: Due to concerns over keeping our staff and volunteers safe during this time, it has been decided to close our offices and warehouse to the public and volunteers. We appreciate your willingness to help us during this time, but, we want to do our part to keep everyone safe.

You are coming to help us reclaim valuable food resources for Eight Counties! The work you will do here impacts the lives of thousands of individuals who are facing food insecurity daily. 

Some of the things you might do are: 
  • Sort, repackage and/or use USDA Guidelines to determine if various items are viable and in good condition.
  • You might help us maintain some of the highest standards of cleanliness to pass our audits-we really do dust the cans! 
  • Decorate for special events and Holidays.
  • Assist with getting marketing material together for events and fairs.
  • Make phone calls to remind folks there is a Tailgate in their area within the next 5 days.
  • Sometimes we have our volunteers work outside (weather permitting).

We only have 21 staff members to cover 8 counties and in the 35 years we have been a food bank our volunteers have helped us distribute almost 200 MILLION pounds of food!!! There are volunteer opportunities for everyone! If you have questions or concerns, just give us a call, we'd be happy to help you find the best volunteer opportunities for you or your group.

You don't even have to tell us you are coming (for individuals and groups of 5 and under)! 

You are welcome to come out M-F from 9am until 3 pm and stay until 4:30 pm. YOU MUST SIGN IN AND OUT at the volunteer computer, have a valid 2019 waiver on file (can fill one out on site) and have CLOSED TOED Shoes in the warehouse. That's about all there is to it. We'll give you a brief tour, tell you about ourselves and how our volunteers help us to reach our goals. You'll be shown to the area you are to volunteer in that day and given an information on how to do it, what steps to get it done and why.
