Volunteer Opportunities



Come alone or with a friend!  Bring your co-workers, your family, your friends! One hour of your time provides the Food Bank with $21.79 in labor savings.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina schedules volunteers weekdays, Thursday evenings and  Saturday mornings.  Monday through Friday, there are two shifts, 9am to 12 noon and 1pm-4pm.  Thursday evenings are 6pm -9pm. Saturday mornings, we work 9am to 12 noon.  Training begins promptly at the start of each shift.  Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time for signing in and making a nametag.  We also suggest carpooling as weekday parking is limited especially in the morning.  Training and materials are provided for all volunteer tasks.


Children 12 years of age  are welcome to come with their parents on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. For ages 13-16, we ask for one adult for every six teens.   Ages 17 and up may come on their own, but no one under 18 is permitted to operate any equipment,  including pallet jacks. We are glad to provide documentation for community service hours needed for school.
