VOLUNTEER

Whether it's sorting, packing, distributing food or helping with clerical work, we can always use your helping hand. Ask us about opportunities to volunteer. When everyone does just a little to help, the food bank can do a lot!

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Stamp Out Hunger

We will be partnering again with the post office in a nationwide food drive!  During the day, postal workers will be picking up food donations at community members' homes.  After food is collected, Community Food Bank is requesting the help of volunteers at local post offices throughout Fresno to sort donations before it is brought back to our facility. 

This is a great event for students, families and individuals! We need 10-15 volunteers per station.  Volunteers must be 8 years or older for this event.
