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 2015, volunteers donated nearly 18,000 hours of time to us.

After completing the Volunteer Application Form here, please read through the Orientation Manual to complete the process.

 

Volunteer Shifts Typically Available

Schedule of Shifts

 

A photo ID will be requested on your first day, so please make sure and have it ready to go. 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.
