As a Volunteer

Give Your Time to Volunteering


Volunteer your time, individually or as a group, to help feed neighbors in need.

Giving is your opportunity to be a part of making a difference in our community. From individuals to corporations, each person and every volunteer hour makes an impact on our mission. Whether you want to dig in at one of our partnering farms or gardens, be hands-on in our commercial kitchen or 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. 

Covid Health & Safety Precautions

Chester County Food Bank has a COVID vaccine requirement for all staff and on-site volunteers. We are committed to a safe workplace and doing our part to address the pandemic. We continue to monitor COVID-19 trends and local updates closely and we will continue to adjust CCFB policies accordingly. While we generally follow CDC, PA Dept. of Health, and Chester County Health Dept. guidelines – please note that we may enforce additional/stricter policies internally in an effort to be proactive about protecting our workplace.

All volunteers are expected to self-screen before reporting to their scheduled volunteer shift.  Find our available opportunities, volunteer registration, and COVID-19 protocols here or the Sign-Up button below.

Color Some Kindness

Bring a kind word to recipients and brighten their day by decorating boxes for our Grocery Boxes for Seniors. All ages are welcome to participate, but this is a great service opportunity for children who are not old enough for our other volunteer opportunities.

Boxes can be picked up by request from our facility and returned within two weeks. We pack nearly 800 boxes a month so we have plenty of coloring opportunities.

Please complete our online request form if you are interested in Coloring Kindness.  Please consider hosting a virtual food drive along with your Coloring Kindness or make a donation to help support programs like our Senior Food Boxes.
