From 5:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. on each distribution evening, 20 walk-in student volunteers are needed to help package food, stock shelves, and generally serve our clients. All volunteers must be 18 or older.

Beginning with the March 30, 2016 distribution all walk-in volunteers must use the online sign-up system to pre-register to volunteer. To register for a volunteer position at a distribution just click on the "Volunteer Calendar" button.  You will need to create an account to register and the account will allow you to manage your distribution sign ups.  Once a distribution has reached capacity you will be able to sign up for a waiting list.  If a person cancels their registration for a distribution the next person up on the waiting list will be assigned that spot.  Please only sign up for distributions you are sure that you can attend.
