Sign Up to Serve Your Community

The Food Bank employs a small full time staff and relies on the many helping hands of our awesome volunteers in “helping heal the hurt of hunger”.  We accept volunteer help and donated in-kind services in many categories. Individuals or groups are welcomed.  From clerical help in our offices to sorting donated food to weighing out individual bags of rice or beans, there are many ways to help and many needs to be met! 

The Food Bank is open every 2nd and 4th Saturday from 8:00 a.m until noon, so stop by and VOLUNTEER.  We look forward to having you! Volunteers are also welcome during our business hours.

We ask that individual volunteers be 18 years of age. Children 10 and older may volunteer along with a parent or responsible party. Parents may not bring small children when you volunteer.


You must fill out and submit a volunteer application at the Food Bank. Volunteer Orientation is available on an individual basis and must be scheduled. If you would like to be contacted for volunteer opportunities, fill out the form at the bottom of this page. You can also contact Volunteer Coordinator Natalie Flores by calling 361-578-0591 or email.
