Second Harvest volunteers… keeping hunger at bay every day! Volunteers make all the difference in the success of the food bank. Volunteers do mission-critical tasks like sorting donated items, packing food boxes, aiding in administration and helping at special events. 

Court Appointed Service Volunteers: Non-violent, non-theft court-appointed volunteers may be accepted by Second Harvest. All volunteers must be approved, may be subject to a background check and must abide by the safety rules and code of conduct. Any volunteer acting inappropriately will be dismissed immediately.

If you share photos of your volunteer experience, be sure to tag Second Harvest! Second Harvest can be found on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. Use the hashtag #kepthungeratbay when you post!
