Youth Volunteers

The Food Bank is a fun, nurturing environment for kids and teens to learn discipline, social awareness, teamwork and other transferrable skills. We offer age-appropriate volunteer opportunities for kids as young as 8.

Youth volunteers ages 8-17 must be accompanied by an adult age 21 or older. Youth groups must bring one adult chaperone for every five youth under 18.

Morning and afternoon shifts are available to youth volunteers Monday through Saturday. We also offer a youth and family night on the first Tuesday of the month.

What to Wear

For safety reasons, sleeveless shirts and open-toe shoes are not permitted. Remember, you’ll be on your feet, moving around, so please dress comfortably. Jeans, t-shirts and sneakers or work boots are perfect.
