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?

Kids’ Food Basket is unique in that we have volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, and groups ages 5-95. Volunteers are what drive our mission every day by making sandwiches, preparing fruits and veggies into serving sizes, bagging trail mix, packing our Sack Suppers and more! We are thrilled that over 33% of volunteers hours served come from youth ages 18 and under. Please note: we ask that volunteers ages 5-16 be accompanied by an adult.

Common questions

Are there opportunities to volunteer off-site?

Yes! We need your help, and not always at our facility. There are many ways to get involved from packing Supper Packs, making trail mix, and decorating Sack Supper bags. Click here to learn more. 

What else do I need to know before my volunteer opportunity? 

Volunteering at Kids' Food Basket is fun and easy! Wear comfy shoes as you will be standing for around an hour or so, and if you've signed up for food prep feel free to bring a hat so you don't have to wear a hair net. Otherwise, just be prepared for a great time!
