Some basics to know before volunteering are: 

Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult or group supervisor to work in our warehouse during regular business hours. Exceptions are made for groups and families with younger volunteers, but please keep in mind that Second Harvest Food Bank is a “working warehouse” and not all warehouse activities are appropriate for young volunteers.

Volunteers will need to register for specific shifts in order to keep everyone safe and allow for proper social distancing. Volunteers will need to wear a mask, wash their hands upon arrival, wear gloves before beginning a task, and sanitize their hands between tasks.

Due to the risks created by COVID-19, you MAY NOT volunteer with us if you or someone in your household has been diagnosed or exhibited symptoms including cough, fever, or shortness of breath.

You must be at least 14 days symptom free, without medication, before volunteering with us. Click here for more information about keeping yourself safe.

Jeans, shorts and tee shirts are acceptable attire for all volunteer activities. We ask ALL volunteers wear CLOSED TOED SHOES for safety. No flip flops, sandals or other open-toed shoes.

You will find a complete listing of opportunities on Our GivePulse Site, however, if you have questions, email our Volunteer Coordinator who will be happy to help!
