That’s all! We look forward to having you at the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama.
We also welcome volunteers who have court-mandated community service.

Volunteering is fun and active, so dress comfortably. There is no air conditioning and limited heat in the warehouse. In the winter, we recommend wearing warm clothes with layers that you can remove as you start moving. In summer, t-shirts and shorts are recommended. For your safety, CLOSED-TOE SHOES ARE MANDATORY. Flip flops and sandals are not allowed in the warehouse.
We have morning and afternoon shifts available! If your group is interested in attending one of our Mobile Pantry events, let us know! These are typically held in the mornings on various days of the week.
We are able to accommodate children over the age of 8. Kids must be accompanied by an adult, and we require that volunteer groups bring 1 adult for every 6 kids. If you have children under 8 that want to volunteer, we suggest that you help them organize a food drive and bring the food to the Food Bank. When you drop it off, we will be happy to give them a tour and explain how food banks work.
Please contact us at email@example.com to schedule a large group. We can accommodate group sizes of between 6 and 12 people per shift. For larger groups, we can schedule multiple shifts of 12, at different times. We schedule groups from Monday-Thursday 9 am-11:30 am or 1:00-3:00 pm and Friday 9 am-11:30 am. Each volunteer shift is 2-2.5 hours.
After a brief training, volunteers inspect, sort, and pack food donations into ready-to-go boxes. This role is extremely important as it keeps our food supply safe. Last year over 2,000 volunteers helped us supply millions of meals to neighbors in need!
Please note: we cannot guarantee a specific activity, as it changes based on our current needs.
