We love our volunteers.png

Second Harvest has volunteer opportunities nearly every day.


Whether that means we’ll find you in the Community Meals kitchen packing up trays for children and seniors; inspecting donations in the warehouse; catching rays and tending beds in the Fitzgerald Teaching Garden (seasonally); or helping out in the office, you’ll be part of a community of people working together to feed hope, health, and opportunity...because we’re all better off when everyone can access the healthy food they need to live their healthiest, best life.
