To assure the safety and health of staff, volunteers and the emergency food network, Hunger Task Force has cancelled all scheduled volunteerism until further notice. Hunger Task Force will utilize staff only to maintain food banking operations. Hunger Task Force values volunteers as our most appreciated resource—and we miss you! We look forward to welcoming our volunteer force back as soon as we feel it is safe.

Hunger Task Force relies on the help of more than 16,000 generous volunteers every year. From food sorting and building healthy food boxes for seniors to helping individuals shop the Mobile Market and harvesting at The Farm, we need your help.
