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

We are grateful for the hundreds of families, organizations, and individuals that have Colored Some Kindness for our Grocery Boxes for Seniors through the years. What started out as a volunteer opportunity for children and families to give back to our community has blossomed into a widespread effort to send a caring word and goodwill to our neighbors who are experiencing difficulty in their lives.

Due to the popularity of the program, delayed return of decorated boxes, and inflated cost of materials, we will be temporarily pausing Coloring Some Kindness. We are looking to develop an in-house volunteer opportunity in the coming months. Stay tuned to our Facebook & Instagram for updates on Coloring Some Kindness at CCFB.
