Thank you for wanting to help in the fight against hunger in our community! We could not do what we do without our volunteers! SHFB distributes 50 million pounds of food to our 700 non-profit agencies thru-out 14 counties in NC and 5 counties in SC. More than 40,000 volunteers will contribute more than 120,000 hours to us this year and there will still be more work to be done!

Volunteers help us sort, inspect and pack food and other items in our warehouse uptown at 500-B Spratt Street, Charlotte NC. All volunteers will be working in the warehouse so please wear comfortable clothing and closed toe shoes.
