Roll up your sleeves and help make your community stronger!

At TCV Food Bank + Thrift Store, the heart and soul of our operation is our marketplace. Last year we gave out over 6 million pounds of food to community members in Fremont, Newark, and Union City. Each pound went through the hands of at least one warehouse volunteer and we anticipate a large increase in the amount of food we distribute in the coming months. That means we are in constant need of volunteers who will directly serve our clients.

Get exercise! Work in a great team! Learn how a warehouse operates and acquire warehouse management skills! Get a reference or recommendation after a period of time volunteering with our warehouse supervisors! Have fun while helping the community!

The Foodbank is open Monday-Thursday. Volunteer shifts are available from 7:30am-4pm. Volunteer tasks may include:

  • Help stock our shelves while clients make their food selections

  • Sort and bag canned goods and produce

  • Help our clients while they select food

  • Use pallet jack/hand carts to help organize warehouse

  • Light clean-up at end of shifts

Volunteer Orientation: Come join and start making a difference right away! Our Volunteer Orientations are hosted every Wednesday at 10am and Thursday at 1pm. We could use the most volunteer help on Tuesday mornings and weekday afternoons.

Setting a Volunteer Shift:
Volunteers are welcome to immediately volunteer with TCV following orientation. We request volunteers notify the Volunteer Coordinator 24 hours in advance for any volunteer shifts or cancellations and work a minimum two hour shift.

Age Requirements: Minors must have parental consent to work at the food bank. Those under 16 must also be accompanied by a parent/chaperone at all times. No individuals under 6 years old are allowed to volunteer with our site.

Parking: Please park in the Tree of Life Church parking lot at the corner of Peralta and Maple, 4140 Peralta Blvd, Fremont.
