There is an abundance of food, knowledge and philanthropy in our community. Only by working together can we channel this bounty to its greatest impact. Our partners include 300 local nonprofits, companies and civic groups, Community leaders and volunteers of every age… and YOU!
In 2013, volunteers provided nearly 20,000 hours of volunteer service. This support saves thousands of dollars and allows the Foodbank to provide more resources to the community.

Community Impact Volunteers
Our community leadership model increases our impact and sustainability while creating an incredibly powerful, long-standing network of people engaged in solving nutritional problems in our county.
With a weekly or monthly commitment, we will empower you to become a community leader by providing training in skills ranging from growing your own food to food literacy curricula for children. Meet our Community Leaders.
