It takes a lot of people to feed a lot of people!

By becoming a part of our volunteer family you’ll play an important role in feeding 190,000+ friends and neighbors in Ventura County each year.

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization and the heart behind our mission to lead the fight against hunger in Ventura County. Every hour of goodwill translates into food on the plates of our hungry friends and neighbors. 

Volunteer opportunities for individuals (12 yrs & older only) and groups (min. 6, max 15 people) are available Monday through Friday 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, with some evening and weekend shifts also available. Shift times and locations vary depending on the opportunity. 

Volunteer roles include packing food boxes for our drive-thru food distributions, rescue food sorting, bread sorting, gleaning fresh produce, and gardening in the Senior Nutrition Garden. Specific details can be found in our Volunteer Brochure and in the Volunteer Handbook, below.
