Looking to Volunteer This Summer?

The Corporation for National and Community Service report that people who volunteer regularly have less stress, stay active and engaged, and have lower risks of depression. It’s one of many reasons we invite you to join us this summer and volunteer. Plus, you’ll meet others while lending a helping hand.

Volunteers help with:

  • Sorting, repacking and prepping food for delivery to communities across the state
  • Assisting clients at food distributions
  • Assisting clients in person and on the phone to apply for benefits like SNAP
  • Performing administrative tasks

This summer sign up to help and dedicate a few hours every week by volunteering.  It’s easy to register online. Your gift of time truly helps provide food to low-income families in need.

Warehouse Volunteers
Volunteers perform tasks that are often physically demanding.  Tasks involve lifting, carrying, pushing, pulling, bending and reaching.  Wear jeans, tennis shoes and t-shirts  for this type of volunteer work. Closed toed shoes are required to help inside the warehouse. Warehouse volunteer hours:

Monday’s: 9 am to 1 pm
Tuesday’s-Friday’s: 9 am to 4 pm
Saturday’s: 8 am to 2 pm

Individual volunteers may register online.  Groups with two or more in the volunteer party should complete this online form or call 505.349.5358 to set up a day and time. Volunteers can sign up to help out for one shift/day or multiple shifts/days.

Non-Warehouse Volunteers
Roadrunner Food Bank also seeks volunteers to help with special projects, outreach activities, food distribution support, events and other activities.  These are typically volunteer assignments that require a longer time commitment and vary in terms of availability each week.  Please complete this online application so we may learn more about you.  Once the survey is completed, we’ll contact you and schedule a time to meet.  From there we can work together to determine days and times that work for you and us too!

Thank you for your gift of time!  We look forward to engaging you in our work.
