The Capital Area Food Bank is vital to the supply chain for the procurement and distribution of food in our region. This means volunteers from any area can still travel to the food bank. Please carry this LETTER with you when traveling to or from the food bank to volunteer.

Together we can solve hunger. Volunteer.

Individual Volunteers

The Capital Area Food Bank’s volunteer community is one of our most important resources. Each year, volunteers save the food bank millions of dollars while helping to feed men, women, and kids in need.  When you sort and pack food in our distribution center, rake and plant in our garden, distribute fresh produce at our free community farmer’s markets, or offer your time in any of the other ways that the food bank has to get involved, you’re making a positive difference in someone’s life. 

Come see how good it feels to make an impact in your community, and to have fun doing it. Start your volunteer journey by checking out our FAQs page and then hop over to the volunteer opportunity calendar

We look forward to seeing you soon!
