Help your community

Volunteers play a central role in powering our mission. Whether transporting donations from local grocery stores, supporting our social media efforts or preparing food baskets, you can make an impact.

Support from volunteers like you allows us to provide food and to people in need. Your gift of time allows us to improve and expand our services within the service area.

How to get involved

Thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers, our warehouse, food sharing and transportation positions are currently filled, and there is a waitlist. But there are several areas where we could use your support today.

Are you social? If you enjoy social media challenges, and have knowledge of social media best practices, we’d love to hear from you. Familiar with analytics and SEO, step right up!

How’s your visual storytelling? Step right up become a member of our graphic design team. This is not a role for someone with a new Canva license, (although we love a good Canva template) but someone who can help us move forward with our branding and message.

Afraid of commitments? How about a one-time volunteer opportunity at a special event? If you’re outgoing, never met a stranger and have the gift of gab, let us hear from you. From shred-a-thons to our holiday events, we can use your help.

Do you love a good hashtag? As we grow our followers, we could sure use your help. This is as simple as sharing our posts, commenting when the mood strikes you and participating in our polls. With your help we can reach more people and offer more hope.

Is organizing in your DNA? If you enjoy organizing events, we’ve got an opportunity for you. How about hosting a community food drive? From as small as a scout troop to your kid’s school, we are always in need of supplies. Check out our resources available here on our website.

Please note that volunteers at events or on-site must be at least 14 years old. Volunteers between the age of 14 and 16 must be accompanied by a parent.

We know that you have choices when volunteering, and we want to make sure we respect your time and appreciate your contributions. If you have questions, ideas or want to get involved, give our Volunteer Coordinator, Jamie Pear, a call at 480-488-1145 extension 105, or send a message.

Need Community Service Hours?

All community service hours are scheduled based on your schedule and availability and the needs of the food bank. Please note that all students under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult during their volunteer shift. Both the student and guardian must complete volunteer applications at the Food Bank before they are eligible to work. You cannot be scheduled until both signed applications are received.

We are blessed to have so many dedicated, supportive individuals who give their time to help others.
