Volunteer in our Garden

The Food Bank’s Garden serves as a replicable model of sustainable growing practices and teaches clients the importance of healthy eating and physical activity. Come help empower your community as you assist our gardener by planting seeds and seedlings, pulling weeds, shoveling compost, harvesting produce, and cultivating the garden beds! Shifts are available at various times each week, weather permitting.

Garden volunteer shifts are offered in the morning on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Please review available shift opportunities to register yourself as an individual.
