Volunteers needed to screen, sort, box and shelve food items, label cans and package produce in our warehouse.

(Offered on selected weekends). If you are interested in weekend volunteer opportunities, please indicate your interest in an email to volunteer@accfb.org. (Scheduled dates can be found under Weekend Food Sorting at www.accfb.org/volunteering.) We have two shifts on weekends, 9:00 am - Noon and 1:00 - 4:00 pm. We ask volunteers to sign in prior to the beginning of the shift and they need to be able to stay for the duration of the shift requested. Because of safety considerations, we do not have "drop-in" shifts. Weekend volunteer activities take place in a warehouse setting. Closed-toed shoes are required. Please arrive promptly. Volunteers arriving late will be asked to reschedule their shift.

Note: Saturday volunteer opportunities usually fill at least 8-10 weeks in advance.

IMPORTANT: If you are coming with minors (children between the ages of 10-17 years old) we require a 1:5 ratio, one adult chaperone per five youth. The teachers/parents will be the supervisors for the group.

WAIVER: Groups and individuals will need to complete a waiver form, which will be collected at the start of the shift. Click here to download one ahead of time.
