Stand with us against hunger.

Give the gift of time and feed food security.

Without the commitment of volunteers, our weekly markets could not happen, community gardens would not be the vibrant spaces they are, and many of our programs would not be possible.

If you have a generous personality and interest in helping ensure everyone is able to make a choice about healthy food options, please consider volunteering with us. We have excellent opportunities for welcoming individuals interested in growing connections to their community or gaining volunteer experience for school or resumé.
