About

Do you want to help provide food and support to your neighbors in need? Volunteer at the Food Shelf to help stock shelves, shop alongside your neighbors, or help out in the warehouse.

WBAEFS Food Shelf volunteers are responsible for helping to create a welcoming and positive environment for our neighbors. Market Volunteers help to greet neighbors upon arrival and assist with shopping by explaining the shopping process, offering assistance with bagging and departure. Stocking Volunteers help maintain a clean and visually appealing market area by restocking as needed as well as organizing shelves and ensuring freshness of food products.
