Volunteering

Volunteers are the heart of our organization. In 2016, over 2,600 volunteers generously contributed 38,000 hours of their time – equivalent to 19 full-time staff! These volunteers helped us collect, sort, repack and distribute 9.2 million pounds of food!

Most volunteer positions are a regular, weekly 2-3 hour shift that falls on a weekday, Monday-Friday, between 9 am and 6:30 pm. We also have a few shifts on Saturdays in Loveland. Some short-term evening and weekend events are also available. Please note we are unable to accommodate volunteers under the age of ten with the exception of certain food drives. Please visit our special event/weekend volunteer opportunities for upcoming food drives that need volunteers of all ages.

To get started, please complete and submit the volunteer questionnaire. Once completed, our volunteer manager will be in contact to schedule your orientation.

To learn more about Corporate Group, Community Service (Court-referred), Family, or Service Learning opportunities, please email our volunteer manager.
