Second Harvest Food Bank relied on more than 29,000 volunteers last year whose hours totalled 94,672. It's pretty incredible to see so many caring individuals pass through our warehouse throughout the year. Our various volunteer opportunities offer fun and unique ways for individuals and groups to contribute their time, talents and resources to help our neighbors in need.

Each individual volunteer must register on their own. This allows us to keep accurate track of hours per volunteer.
Court Ordered Community Service
While we do accept volunteers that need to fulfill court ordered community service hours, please note that your offense must NOT involve a violent crime, theft, drug or sexual offense charge. You also must be willing to provide all of the information regarding the court order and/or Probation/Diversion officer information for follow up by our organization on your first volunteer shift. We specifically need your documents to list your offense. Your first volunteer shift CANNOT be on a Saturday. Please let us know upon arrival that you are court ordered so we can enter your information into our system for tracking.
