The White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf relies on volunteers to provide food and support to our neighbors in need. We have a variety of group and individual volunteer opportunities available. All volunteers must complete an application and participate in an orientation before volunteering.

Individual Volunteer Opportunities include:

  • Greeter – Greet neighbors as they arrive to shop and schedule appointments over the phone.
  • Driver – Pick up Food Rescue product from various local grocery stores.
  • Stocker – Help sort items and restock shelves.
  • Market – Be available to answer questions and provide support to neighbors during their shopping appointment.
  • Special Events – Help as needed for various food drives and other special events.

For individual opportunities, we generally ask that you make a six-month commitment to work at least two times per month.

Group Volunteer Opportunities Include:

  • KID Pack Assembly Events
  • Community Roots Garden
  • Mobile Markets

For more information about these or other volunteer opportunities please contact Lee, our volunteer coordinator at (651) 407-5310 x223 or email lee@whitebearfoodshelf.org with any questions.
