Who Can Volunteer?

Our volunteers include individuals, families, senior citizens, corporate groups, religious organizations, school groups, and many others who help us feed the hungry in San Diego County.

Volunteers must be six years or older, and all minors 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult (1 adult for every 4 children). We welcome middle and high school students to complete any school-required service hours, but we would like to remind every volunteer that it is their responsibility to plan and schedule their visit well in advance, since registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Food Bank accepts court mandated service hours, but ONLY misdemeanor offenses will be considered eligible, and additional documentation must be provided.


Why We Need Your Help?

The San Diego Food Bank feeds over 300,000 people per month, and we rely entirely on our volunteers to inspect, sort, and package tons of food for distribution every day.


Volunteer Projects Include:

  • Cleaning and packaging fresh produce for immediate distribution.
  • Inspecting, sorting, boxing, and labeling food donations.
  • Assembling food packages for our Food Program


How To Volunteer:

You do not need any special training to volunteer, and there are no constraining time commitments.

You may volunteer one time, or on a regular basis.
