Are you looking for a satisfying but flexible volunteer opportunity? Peninsula Food Runners is a volunteer organization dedicated to alleviating hunger and reducing food waste since 2013! We invite you to join us. Peninsula Food Runner volunteers pick up excess food from participating Donors (restaurants, corporate cafeterias, etc.), and then deliver the food directly to our Recipients (shelters, affordable housing for families and the elderly, Boys and Girls Clubs, etc.).

We need weekday volunteers to help us deliver food in the Daly City, SSF, Millbrae, Brisbane, Colma, San Bruno and Pacifica area. Surplus food is available, but we have too few drivers on weekdays to transport the food to local non-profits which feed the hungry.

Check out the wonderful video about our work!

We hit the front page of the Mercury News on Thanksgiving Day!

Shifts are available mostly during the week and also on weekends and normally take less than 60-90 minutes and can work around your schedule. Come join our team of volunteers! Go to www.peninsulafoodrunners.org and click Sign Up at the top right corner. Be sure to read the food safety guidelines and take the food safety quiz. (Hint: the items in RED will help you answer the quiz!) Contact Hoai-An (pronounced 'Why-Ann) at ht@peninsulafoodrunners.org if you have any questions.

Once you sign up, use our ChowMatch.com website and/or phone app to view opportunities, sign up for food runs, notify us of your vacation time, etc.
