Pledge to Volunteer In Your Community.

Volunteers power the Feeding America network. Over half of all soup kitchens, food pantries and meal programs rely entirely on volunteers. And when you give your time, you get back something amazing in return: The feeling that you are helping families who need it.

No matter what happens in the world, you absolutely have the power to make a difference.

How to Volunteer: It’s easier than you may think

Food banks and food pantries in the Feeding America network are run by experts in the field – and they’re ready to bring you into the fold. The best part: Spending a few hours sorting, packing or stacking food can make an enormous difference for the food banks and the families they serve.

Feeding America volunteers share their skills and make a huge impact. Every volunteer experience is a little different, for example, food banks could need your help sorting and packing food, gardening, or educating the community. Each experience is critical in helping get healthy meals to families facing hunger.

Maximize your impact with a group volunteer experience

Most food banks in the Feeding America network can host up to 50 volunteers. Group volunteer events can make a big impact on the fight against hunger in your local community.

Ask your employer’s human resources department for information about your company’s National Day (or Week) of Service activities. And please contact your local food bank or check your local food bank’s website to learn about group volunteer opportunities in your area.
