Food Shelf Volunteers

Channel One Regional Food Bank depends heavily on volunteers to run our local Supplemental Food Shelf Program. Volunteers stock shelves, assist clients with their shopping and keep the Food Shelf running smoothly.

Volunteers are needed in the Food Shelf Monday—Thursday 8:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.
and Fridays 8:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.

Food Shelf volunteers must be at least 14 years old, and those under the age of 16 must have an adult with them at all times. Scheduling for individual volunteers is now available online. New volunteers will be given access after they have completed orientation.
