volunteers-repackingWant to Volunteer?  Start Here!

Welcome, Volunteers! Our success in providing emergency food assistance in the Gallatin Valley for 35 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. Throughout the past fiscal year (2016-17), volunteers have contributed more than 18,516  hours of their time! Some of them have been donating their time and energy for over 10 years. Our volunteers range in age from nine years old to 91 years young! Volunteers build shelves for us, tend to our humble landscaping, and create lasting relationships while serving our community. We cannot thank them enough; they are our spirit and our vigor!

– Interested in volunteering as a group?

There are many ways to assist the Food Bank in meeting its mission. Please complete the Group Volunteer Form if you are interested in bringing your group by for a tour or service project.

2. Host a Food Drive.

From hosting garage sales to coordinating food drives, there are many opportunities to help the Food Bank and your neighbors in need outside of volunteering direct service at the Food Bank. If you choose to conduct a food drive or fundraiser for the Food Bank, please let us know by registering your food drive with us.  Please review our Food and Fund Drive Manual.
