Because of Governor Lee’s announcement expiring the Safer at Home Executive Order on April 30, Second Harvest Food Bank will allow volunteers back in the warehouse beginning Monday, May 11. At that time, we will allow 10 volunteers in one shift, Monday through Friday. There are two shifts each day: 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1-4 p.m. The group of ten will separate to two smaller groups to comply with social distancing. If you’d like to sign up to volunteer, please email Dylan, or give him a call at (865) 243-8238.

Volunteers make all the difference in the success of the food bank, doing 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.
