Note: We are currently working on our schedule for the 2019-2020 school year. Once we finalize that schedule, we will have the volunteer events ready for sign-up. Thank you for all your help!!!
Our volunteers are awesome and amazing, and we can’t thank them enough! Our nonprofit exists and continues to grow because of the kindness and generosity of the people in Champaign-Urbana!
Food sorting (Biweekly, normally Wednesday between 3-4:30 pm): Volunteers repackage food into individual bags and prepare bins full of bags for each school. Our nonprofit is unique because kids are welcome to help sort food! It is important for kids to gain an awareness of community issues and learn that they have the power to help and create change! Many teens from middle school and high schools assist us to help fulfill their honor society service hours because our sorts are a fun and easy way to serve.

Donation Inventory Volunteers (10-12 people, monthly on Saturdays at 10am): Volunteers check donated food to make sure it isn’t expired, organize it by type and take inventory of how much we have on hand.

Delivery Truck Unloading (10-12 people monthly on Mondays at 12:30pm & 3:00pm): Once a month, we need help unloading the food we order from the store and the Foodbank and storing it in the church

School delivery Volunteers: We have volunteers who deliver the bags of food to the social workers at each school. Even if your school already has a delivery person, having a back up person is helpful. If you are interested in this opportunity, please email us!
In addition, we are looking for businesses, clubs, and churches that are able to have food drives or fundraisers. We can always use people who have experience with finances, graphic design, fundraising, and administrative tasks. If you have an idea of how to help, please email us!
