Volunteering is one of the most rewarding ways to be involved with Philabundance. Whether you want to get hands-on in our warehouse or one of our direct service programs, see the inner workings of our organization by assisting with administrative tasks, or help us spread the word at special events, there is an opportunity that is perfect for you.
While we collect much of our food during the holiday season, the need exists all year round. Consider becoming a volunteer in the new year and joining the year round fight against hunger.
In addition to our warehouse and other needs, the following programs need your help:
- Hunger Relief Center – All of Philabundance’s sorting and packing takes place at our Hunger Relief Center in South Philadelphia. Hundreds of volunteers are needed each week to sort and pack supplemental and emergency food items. This is a great opportunity for volunteer groups.
- Community Food Center – Philabundance’s food pantry provides access to emergency food in a choice-style setting that empowers individuals to make healthy choices. Volunteers are needed to unload deliveries, stock shelves, check out participants and data entry. (This opportunity is for individuals only at this time.)
- Fresh For All – This program distributes fresh produce weekly, similar to a farmer’s market, to some of the Delaware Valley’s most underserved neighbors. Each site requires 10-15 volunteers per distribution day.
Is your company, school, place of worship, or civic group looking for a project? Volunteering is a great opportunity for team-building and giving back to the communities where we live and work. Check out our volunteer opportunities.
