Volunteer: Together we can solve hunger in West Michigan

In Our Warehouse

About 15% of the donated food that comes to us has special handling requirements, which we couldn’t meet without volunteers! We welcome individuals and groups. Children under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult. We ask that all volunteers wear closed shoes for safety – absolutely NO flip-flops allowed. We suggest older clothing and extra layers during cooler weather. Work appropriate shorts are fine in warmer weather.

Hours of Operation

Monday – Friday
9:00 am – 4:30 pm
Saturday
8:30 am – 12:30 pm
Sunday – Closed

In The Fields

We also need volunteers to “glean” or pick produce from local farms and orchards. The gleaning season generally begins in late June and runs through October. We pick a variety of fruits and vegetables including strawberries, tomatoes, and apples.

Liability Waiver

Prior to serving, all Food Bank volunteers must review our policies and submit a liability waiver and volunteer application. Please bring signed copies with you when you visit.
