Drivers: We need you to commit to driving your vehicle to a donating business to collect the food and deliver it to one of the shelters that we serve. These opportunities take between one to three hours. We rescue food every day of the week usually in the morning. We will work to accommodate your schedule, whether you would like to volunteer once a week, once in a while, or just when we need a substitute. If you cannot commit to a regular weekly pick up – we are always in need of volunteers who may be available to step in when one of our regular volunteers is unable to drive.

Other Opportunities:

Most of our volunteer opportunities take place during school hours, but we do have some opportunities for teenagers and families with school-age children. We also occasionally have projects that are suitable for groups wishing to volunteer together.
