Volunteering at the San Diego Food Bank is a great team-building experience for groups of various sizes. Whether you are a large corporation or a small club, your group will work together on a hands-on project for the hungry. If you have a group of less than five, each volunteer should register as an individual. As long as you sign up for the same date and shift time, you will still get to work together.

Middle And High School Group Volunteers

Middle and high school student groups are welcome to volunteer at the Food Bank.

Volunteering at our warehouse provides students with an opportunity to give back to the community and learn first-hand about hunger and hunger prevention.

Only one contact person is required to register a school group for a volunteer visit. All school groups must have the appropriate ratio of chaperones to students (4 students for every 1 adult).

Elementary School Tours

Due to health and safety issues, elementary school groups larger than 20 cannot be incorporated in volunteer activities. However, elementary school groups are encouraged to take a tour of the Food Bank warehouse to educate students about hunger and how the Food Bank serves our community.

If you would like to schedule a group tour, please contact Sandra Rabourne via email srabourne@sandiegofoodbank.org  or by phone 1-858-863-5142.

We would be happy to assist you in creating a customized visit.
