It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


1301 Blue Spruce Dr.Fort Collins, CO 80524


Not everyone is fortunate enough to know where their next meal will come from. Fortunately, there are amazing places like the Food Bank for Larimer County to tackle the issue of hunger. And of course, there are amazing people like you who are willing to volunteer to help make that possible. So, let’s get to it!


For this volunteer opportunity, the Project Helping group of volunteers will be assisting in the warehouse. Volunteers in this area usually work behind the scenes; sorting food drives, bagging commodities, and repackaging food that arrives in bulk. As space is limited, make sure to register before participating in this awesome event!
