Volunteering is an excellent team-building opportunity! Food Gatherers maintains a working warehouse, processing an average of nine tons of food each day, and volunteers are vital to our success in distributing 7.8 million pounds of food — the equivalent of 6.6 million meals — each year. We welcome volunteer employee groups (up to 25) in our warehouse and at our special events (Rockin’ for the Hungry and Grillin’ for Food Gatherers).
To schedule a group volunteer shift, please complete this form. Returning groups still need to complete the form. A volunteer coordinator will contact you to schedule a shift.
Staff Engagement Sponsorship
Take your staff volunteer day to the next level with a Staff Engagement Sponsorship. Donate $5,000 and we’ll work with you to create a full-day volunteer shift, including a tour of the Food Gatherers warehouse, catered lunch, and use of our board room for an employee volunteer group. Note: there is a maximum of 25 volunteers and the day must be scheduled in advance. Learn more about all sponsorship opportunities here.
Note: Shifts fill up fast! We ask you to request a group shift at least 6-8 weeks in advance, though sometimes we may be able to accommodate your group on shorter notice. Holidays are the most popular time to volunteer, so plan in advance or consider that we need help year-round.
