Volunteer

Volunteer opportunities exist in many areas at North Country Food Bank, including repacking bulk foods in the warehouse, packing boxes or backpacks for our programs, office tasks, data entry, etc. Our goal is to provide meaningful work experience and increase our human resource and service capability through volunteer involvement.

Most volunteer opportunities are available during regular weekday hours. Please call ahead to check on the current volunteer schedule. Organizations and groups may occasionally schedule an evening or Saturday for volunteering. Please call two weeks in advance to schedule or arrange this with the food bank if the group cannot work during regular hours of operation.

We welcome court appointed volunteers. Please call and make arrangements with the operations manager prior to volunteering.
