Getting Started

Check out a day in the life of a volunteer at the Food Bank!

Two Texas State University students made this great video about volunteering opportunities at the Food Bank. Thank you so much Ross and Aaron for the great work!

Volunteers are an integral part of our operation. In 2014, volunteers donated more than 17,000 hours of time to us.

After completing the Volunteer Application Form here, a short 30-minute orientation is needed to complete the process. A photo ID will be requested at this session so please make sure and have it ready to go.

Sessions are held at the following times:

Wednesdays at 9:00 am
Fridays at 11:00 am

Should these times conflict with your work or school schedule, please contact Jim Wagner at (512) 392-8300 Ext. 222 to arrange a time that is suitable for you.

Volunteers will be able to schedule their own shifts after orientation has been completed. Depending on your interests and skills, you may want to volunteer in the front office, in the warehouse, at a public food distribution, or for a special project/event. You can read more about the different volunteer positions here.
