At this time, 20 volunteers can work in one shift, Monday through Saturday. There are two shifts each day: 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1-4 p.m. The group of 20 will separate to two smaller groups to comply with social distancing. All COVID-19 safety procedures and recommendations from the state and the CDC will be followed. 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.
