Join the attack!

Packing and delivering nearly 7,500 Sack Suppers takes the love and support of nearly 250  volunteers each week day -- plus many others who lead food drives, decorate Sack Suppers, and more! How will you be part of the attack on childhood hunger?

To inquire about volunteering at Kids' Food Basket please fill out a volunteer inquiry form below. Kids’ Food Basket is unique in that we have volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, and groups ages 5-95. We are thrilled that over 33% of volunteers hours served come from youth ages 18 and under. We ask that volunteers ages 5-16 be accompanied by an adult. Thank you so much for giving your time and talent. We appreciate your support!

Common questions

Do you offer group volunteering?
Yes! We would love to have your company, team, church or other group join us for a volunteer project. We have some groups that come regularly and others that participate in a one-time volunteer project. Please contact us for more details.

Do you offer volunteer opportunities for kids and teens?
Yes! Around 33% of the hours volunteered at Kids' Food Basket come from youth under age 18. We encourage families to volunteer together, and we also offer youth-led volunteering through our Kids Helping Kids program.

Are there opportunities to volunteer off-site (not at Kids' Food Basket)?
Yes! We need your help, and not always at our facility! While many people think about volunteering by packing Sack Suppers, there are many other ways to get involved. You can lead a food and juice box drive, pack snacks and trail mix, decorate Sack Supper bags, and more. If you have a specific idea in mind for a project, please contact us.

Do you need help with administrative support?
Yes! There are many important jobs our staff does each day that allow us to communicate the important information to our volunteers and donors. If you like working with computers and are good with words, this might be perfect for you! Thank you letters, helping with events, volunteer appreciation activities, and database work are just a few ways you can help! Please contact us to learn more.
