Become a Food Bank Volunteer

Would you like to bring hope to the hungry with the gift of your time? Become a food bank volunteer at Blessings of Hope!

Volunteer in 3 Easy Steps

  1. Schedule as a group or individually. This is simply for the purpose of limiting the number of volunteers coming at one time. If this is your first time scheduling a shift, create a schedule account first, then login to schedule. (Buttons on right)
  2. Apply. If this is your first time volunteering, you will need to complete our volunteer application for your household. (One per household) You can apply with the volunteer application on the right, or in paper form when you arrive for your shift. 
  3. Sign in. When you arrive for your shift our receptionist will ask for your name or the group name that you scheduled with. Then you can sign in and get your nametag. A volunteer coordinator will direct you to your designated tasks.

At Blessings of Hope, we appreciate and rely on our volunteers and their efforts to serve our mission. Together we can bring hope to the hungry!

Family Friendly Volunteer Shifts

All children, including babies, need to be added to the schedule if they are coming to a Family Friendly shift. Family friendly shifts are Monday morning from 8:30 to 11:00, Friday afternoon from 12:30 to 3:00, and Friday evening from 6:30 to 9:00. They are open to children of all ages and will include products that are easier for younger children to work with. In conjunction with work projects we will occasionally have an arts and crafts table with fun activities for the youngest ones to enjoy. Our normal shifts restrict children ages 9 and under, including babies.

Special Family Friendly Shifts between Christmas and New Year. December 27 – 30 all afternoon shifts are family friendly.

Blessings of Hope is looking for volunteers with specific interests outside of our regular packing/bagging shifts:

  • Cleaning: We offer flexible schedules for hardworking individuals who are interested in helping us keep our facility clean and sanitary.
  • Photography: We are looking for volunteer photographers to capture marketing materials for Blessings of Hope at our food outreaches and volunteer shifts!
  • Forklift Operators: If you have your forklift license and enjoy loading and unloading trucks this could be a great opportunity for you.
  • Truck Drivers: We are looking for CDL and Non CDL Drivers to do food deliveries and pickups in various locations. Passengers are permitted. 
  • Truck Washing: Our trucks get dirty from all the deliveries we do and need regular washing and upkeep.
  • Maintenance: Do you enjoy fixing things and making sure everything is running smoothly? We can use help keeping up with equipment maintenance. 
  • Fundraiser Events: We have multiple annual fundraisers and other events to raise funds to help feed the hungry. These are great times for volunteers to work together and bless the community.
  • Stocking Shelves: Help us keep our coolers and freezers stocked for our partner ministries and volunteers. Don’t forget to bring a jacket.
