Share your time to end hunger
When you volunteer with Oregon Food Bank, you’re supporting access to nutritious food today, and you’re building community power to eliminate hunger for good.
Be part of a committed group of people working to end hunger.
There are opportunities to volunteer almost every day and in ways that fit with how you want to help — whether that’s packing food at one of our central locations, distributing nutritious meals in your community, making phone calls from the comfort of your home or lobbying at the state Capitol.
New volunteers: Fill out an application to get started.
Mandated service: Court-mandated and other community service.
Ways to volunteer
At Oregon Food Bank locations
Help sort and re-pack food, work together on seasonal garden projects or advocate for policy change through opportunities at our Portland and Beaverton locations. You can meet community service requirements by volunteering with Oregon Food Bank. All volunteers must register ahead of time.
In the community
Our partner organizations provide food and support to people in your community. Whether you help unload food at a local agency or speak with neighbors about anti-hunger policy efforts, you have the opportunity to build relationships in your community while working to address hunger.
With your small group/family
Help sort and re-pack food, and work together as a small group or family at our Portland and Beaverton locations. Reserve a shift today. For group questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It’s important to have school pantries because that’s where our children are and we can distribute information about food banks. From there the information gets passed down to our neighbors, to our elderly, who also need a lot of help.
