Help Our COVID-19 Response
We have an urgent need for volunteers to pack food for our COVID-19 response. Sign up now to volunteer in our warehouse.
Information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)
For the safety of yourself, our staff, and other volunteers, we strongly encourage all volunteers who join us to be fully vaccinated. At this time, vaccination is not a requirement to volunteer and we will not be checking vaccination status upon arrival. We are still requiring volunteers to wear masks (regardless of vaccination status) and practice social distancing when volunteering.
At the Food Depository, there is no higher priority than the safety of our volunteers, staff and the people we serve. Keeping a clean facility and following best practices for food safety are part of our culture. We are taking extra precautions, including increased cleaning and sanitizing of door handles, countertops, volunteer lockers and other surfaces. Projects are set up to support social distancing and all volunteers are provided with gloves. We ask volunteers who have experienced any symptoms of illness in the last 14 days to stay home. There will be many more volunteer opportunities in the future.
At this time, all volunteer sessions are planned to run as scheduled. If your volunteer session is canceled, we will make every attempt to notify you via email and phone call.
Additionally, we are accepting volunteers aged 16 and older at this time. We are accepting a limited number of youth volunteers aged 11-15, with adult chaperones.
Volunteers are required to wear cloth face coverings over their nose and mouth at all times.
