Because neighbors help neighbors in times of need
Volunteers are essential to our success and play an important role in everything we do! We have a year-round need for volunteers and designate various tasks for individuals and corporate, church, and school groups. Individuals must be at least 14 years of age to volunteer. Minors ages 14-15 must be accompanied by an adult and all minors must have a signed waiver of release on file in order to volunteer. Below is a list of various projects we could use your help with:
Food Sorting – categorize shipments, check expiration dates, and discard damaged or unfit products (frequently involves standing for many hours and occasionally involves heavy lifting)
Food Pickups – pick up food donations throughout York County (must be at least 18 years old, and have a private vehicle, proof of car insurance, and a driver’s license)
Clerical Needs – answer phone calls, enter data, and file (must have basic computer knowledge and good clerical and organizational skills)
Cleaning – clean out the fridge, freezer, and warehouse spaces
Special Events Assistance – help with mailings, answer phone calls, assist with communications development, and coordinate with partner agencies
These are just some examples of ways that you can donate your time to help us conquer hunger in York County. No matter what your talents are we can use your help!

EVERYONE IS WELCOME AND ALL SKILL SETS ARE NEEDED!
The York County Food Bank provides an excellent opportunity for individuals to use their unique skill sets to benefit others. Volunteering is just as important as donating money!
