Volunteer Opportunities

Collection and Distribution

Primarily, we seek volunteers to help on a regular basis with the collection and distribution of donated food. Volunteers generally work in groups to collect food from grocery stores, sort the food, and then deliver it to social services agencies in the area. Collection and Distribution volunteers must be 16 years of age or older.


Food Link operates seven days a week. Please fill out our volunteer interest form, and our staff will contact you to find a shift that works in your schedule.
