Volunteers are the life of The Foodbank, Inc.! If you are flexible, and can volunteer Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, we would love to have you! Corporate and school groups are always welcome, as well.

To schedule a volunteer shift at The Foodbank, please contact Sean Mitchell at 461-0265 x 27 or email SMitchell@thefoodbankdayton.org. Because The Foodbank, Inc. is a warehouse, you must be at least 14 years old to volunteer and be accompanied by an adult. We ask that all volunteers wear closed-toe shoes for safety.

Volunteer Projects

While the exact tasks needing completed each day regularly changes, below are a few descriptions of tasks volunteers may work on. All tasks are accessible and orientation will be provided on-site.

Mobile Farmer’s Markets (Year-round)- The Foodbank goes out to various host sites (mainly in Greene County, three pantries are hosted in Montgomery County, two additional in Preble County) and gives out produce to those in need. Volunteers help fill out paperwork and help pass out food. Each mobile pantry lasts about 1 hour and is scheduled Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm.

Donation Repack (Year-round) When we receive food drives, volunteers sort through the boxes and canned goods. Food drives happen all year round, but two times a year (May and end of the year) we receive large donations. This project is available year-round, during warehouse hours. Some special projects may be scheduled.

Off-Site Projects- Hungry to Help (Year-round)- Ask about our off-site projects appropriate for all ages. These projects can be done in evenings and weekends and help with advocacy efforts, fundraising, and collecting food donations. Check out our Hungry to Help packet here!

Foodbank Farming Friends (July-October mainly)- The Foodbank is looking for volunteers who aren’t afraid of a little hard work. We are teaming up with a local organic farm who wants to give back to the community. This farm in Washington Township is donating vegetables which will be gleaned by volunteers like you! We are looking for volunteers who would be able to pick fruits and vegetables at the farm on 24 to 48 hours’ notice. Picking times may be scheduled in the evening or on Sundays as the farmer is available and produce is ready for picking.

Produce Sort (July-November)- When produce is received from grocery stores, it comes in all conditions. Volunteers sort through the produce, separating fruits from vegetables and separating good from bad. There is some lifting of boxes in doing this task. This project is available Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm in 2-3 hour shifts.

Good-to-Go Backpacks (August-Early May)- Each week, volunteers build packs full of food. These packs are then given to schools and agencies, who in turn, give them to children they see have a hunger need. The children receive them on Friday to sustain them through the weekend. This project is available Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm in 2-3 hour shifts.

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get
    advice from someone with experience. Any help would be
    greatly appreciated!

    When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails
    with the same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you are able
    to remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!
