Thank you for your interest in helping to end hunger in Coastal Georgia. Many of our programs are entirely volunteer run; without the enthusiasm of our volunteers, these programs could not exist. The volunteer time, energy, and dedication mean that thousands of families in our 21-county service area are able to live without the uncertainty and fear of being at risk for hunger. Please visit our Programs page for a more thorough description of how we serve the people of Coastal Georgia.
Here at Second Harvest, we have multiple volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups. Whether you are interested in becoming a regular volunteer or just helping out as time allows, we can work around your schedule. We do prefer to schedule our volunteers ahead of time due to space constraints. However, if you have a few open hours in your day please give us a call.
If you are interested in COURT-RELATED COMMUNITY SERVICE hours, you must make an appointment. Please see below under Volunteer Guidelines and then Court-Related Community Service Hours for requirements.
