All Feeding America food banks utilize volunteers. Quite simply, our work can only be accomplished with the help that volunteers provide.
We are grateful to the more than 2 million individuals who turn the ordinary tasks of sorting food, stocking shelves and packing boxes into the extraordinary work of helping to feed the 48 million Americans—including 15 million children and more than 5 million older adults—struggling with hunger.
Sorting, packing and stacking are essential volunteer tasks at food banks around the country. However, many food banks offer opportunities to put your special skill to work as well. From graphic design to gardening, from fork-lift operating to filing, your area of expertise could help your local food bank get more food to neighbors in need.
Volunteers share their skills, knowledge, talents or professional expertise to create long-lasting outcomes for people in need.
