Thank you for your interest in volunteering with America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend. We depend heavily on individuals and groups to help us in our fight against hunger. The time that you donate at the food bank will go a long way towards helping the men, women and children of the Big Bend get the food they desperately need. 

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the form below to schedule a date for new volunteer orientation. We hold new volunteer orientation twice monthly at 5:30PM. Please follow the link below to find an orientation date that works for you.

SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER

We feed up to 55,000 people each month and are always in need of volunteers and anytime that you can spare is time that we can use. Whether it’s just for an hour a week or a few days a week, you can make a huge contribution to our mission to feed the hungry in the Big Bend Community. The work you will do at Second Harvest can range from sorting donated food, to filling grocery bags for our Senior Grocery Program, to planning and promoting our special events, to helping with administrative tasks in the front office. No matter your interests and skills, we will have challenging work that will help make a real difference in your community.

Please begin by checking out our upcoming special events. We often need individual and/or group volunteers to pick produce donated by local farmers, staff a booth to raise awareness, or help load our truck at a big food drive event. These events are fun, different, and frequently outside of normal business hours – making them easy to fit into your schedule. To learn about and sign up for our upcoming opportunities, please use the form below:
