Volunteer at our Curbside Pick-Up Food Distributions!

SIGN UP HERE! for Curbside Pick-Up Stocker, Greeter and Market volunteer opportunities. These positions are shift-based and you can sign up for multiple shifts to create your own schedule! All of the volunteer roles and schedule are outlined in the Curbside Volunteering – November 2020 document.

If you are interested in the Scheduler, Food Rescue or Warehouse positions, please contact Deb, our volunteer coordinator at deb@whitebearfoodshelf.org. These roles are weekly or bi-weekly and require a 6-month time commitment. 


Help Us Sort Donations!

The Food Shelf receives food donations from food drives, local grocery stores, and supporters in our community. Help us sort and check these items for freshness on Mondays. Volunteers ages 12 – 16 are welcome to volunteer at this shift with an adult. You can see the available volunteer slots and SIGN UP HERE!

Due to the close proximity of volunteers in this shift, please sign up in pairs with a family member or someone in your “Covid bubble.”
