Future Volunteers

Have you ever wondered how we were able to distribute over 9 million pounds of food each year? Our volunteers donate 2,000 hours or more each month! That is the equivalent of nearly $685,000 in payroll savings, annually. The savings helps us invest more into our clients and programs, helping every dollar provide meals for four individuals. ​

Volunteers have direct access to clients through many of our programs, including the Food Mobile and Casita de Comida.
