Food for People

The Food Bank for Humboldt County

Volunteer Application

Thanks for your interest in volunteering with Food for People! The time volunteers give us is golden. Without a doubt volunteers are essential in helping us make sure that people in need have enough to eat. An average of 381 volunteers per month help us accomplish our mission, and there are a variety of volunteer jobs to suit all types of skills and interests. Our Volunteer & Direct Services Manager would love to hear from you, and would be happy to match your skills and talents with our volunteer needs.

All volunteers are required to attend an orientation to begin volunteering.  Volunteer Orientation is every Monday at 2:30pm, except holidays. Orientations generally last about an hour. During that time, we fill out paperwork, tour the facilities, discuss various volunteer opportunities, and get you signed up with a shift that fits your schedule and interests.  If you are unable to make one of the regularly scheduled orientations, our Volunteer & Direct Services Manager will be happy to arrange another time. If you plan to attend an orientation, please start by completing our online volunteer application form.


EXTENDED HOURS: We will be open for volunteer projects on the second Saturday of every month from 10 AM to 1 PM.
