MAKING A DIFFERENCE.

IMPORTANT HEALTH & SAFETY NOTICE: 

Now, more than ever, Second Harvest Food Bank's operations are being called upon to support our community’s most vulnerable. We cannot provide these services without volunteers. We understand that there are concerns about volunteering amid the COVID-19 outbreak, and we take these concerns seriously.

 

We are centered on protecting our staff, volunteers, partner agencies, and people facing hunger during this public health threat. To protect the health of our volunteers and staff, we have made changes to our volunteer program: reducing the number of volunteers at each shift and cutting non-essential projects. These are crucial in our efforts to protect you, us, and the food we distribute. As additional precaution, you will be asked to respond to the following questions at the time you sign up, as well as on the day(s) you volunteer with us. 

 

  1. Do you have a fever or other symptoms of COVID-19?

  2. Have you been exposed to anyone diagnosed positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

  3. Have you been outside of the state of NC within the last 14 days? 

Here is additional guidance for volunteering during these uncertain times.

FOOD SORTING & EGG GRADING

Individuals  |  Groups  |  Community Service Projects

Every day, Second Harvest moves nearly 37 tons of food. We rescue food and receive contributions from our local grocery partners, as well as collect food at food drives. We rely on our generous volunteers to help us sort, inspect, and ensure the safety of the food we receive and to prepare food for distribution to our partner network.
