Volunteers are the key to our success and are needed at all three of our warehouses for a variety of tasks ranging from food sorting, clerical work, restocking shelves, and supporting special events. Groups and individuals are welcome and proper training and orientation is provided. With your help, we can help end hunger for more than 147,000 people in our community. Join us today!
Virtual Food Drive
The most efficient and effective food drive is a virtual food drive! Since the food bank can provide the equivalent to four balanced meals for every dollar you give, when you give through the Virtual Food Drive, Second Harvest can stretch your gift to get more food and you give us the opportunity to use your gift to procure foods most needed for local hunger relief.

Sort Food & Stock Shelves
Our greatest need is volunteers who are willing to be trained for food sorting activities. A large portion of food handled each month by the food bank comes from local grocers and other donors. Every item needs to be inspected, sorted, and placed on the shelves. This opportunity is available during our warehouse hours from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Please call 912-236-6750 to sign up. Please click here for more information.

Brown Bag for the Elderly
This direct service program provides food for low-income seniors when they need it most – at the end of the month when Social Security income is running low. Each month, volunteers meet at the food bank to pack more than 1,700 grocery bags with non-perishable items from our warehouse for income-eligible senior citizens. For a schedule of Brown Bag volunteer Saturdays,click here.
