Want to Volunteer? Start Here!

Current volunteer needs are posted, however, we are limiting interaction due to recent recommendations from our local Health Dept.  As this crisis continues to grow we want to protect everyone who might be more at risk. For your reference here are the guidelines from the CDC.

All New Volunteer Orientations are postponed until further notice. We appreciate your support during this uncertain time.


Our success in providing emergency food assistance in the Gallatin Valley for 37 years is due fully to the contributions of our very dedicated volunteers. More than 100 volunteers perform all weekly duties required for the Food Bank to operate. Additionally, our supplemental nutrition programs rely on volunteers as well as our special events.  In 2019, more than 1,400 individuals contributed over 17,638 hours of volunteer time. We are so lucky to have so many volunteers tirelessly contributing their time and talents to ensure the success of our food bank! We are always looking for additional volunteers to process donations, stock shelves, repackage food, work in our gardens and much more!

I have been a Thursday morning volunteer at the Gallatin Valley Food Bank for about 2 years. Volunteering for me is about meeting a need to under-served families and individuals in the community but more than that, it is about the people. There has been a consistency of volunteers that have become my friends whom I look forward to working with as well as the clients that have come to know me in the “bread room”. I am so proud to be part of such a giving community that touches so many people with their generosity in donations of time, talent and monetary contributions.
