Volunteers are an integral part to the operation of the Chester County Food Bank. From individuals to corporations, each person and every volunteered hour makes an impact on our mission to feed and nourish our community. Whether you want to dig in at one of our partnering farms or gardens, be an ambassador at community events, be hands on in our warehouse, or assist the office team, we’d love to have you or your group volunteer with us!
Volunteer opportunities are available year round, however, our need does vary based on season, weather, inventory and program schedules. Ongoing opportunities are listed below, posted on our Facebook page or you can be notified of immediate needs by registering online. Once registered, we will include you on our email notifications of upcoming and immediate volunteering needs. Registering does not sign you up for a task, and all volunteers must register
