Volunteers are a crucial part of our mission at Feeding San Diego. With an ambitious goal of ending hunger in San Diego County through food rescue, we rely on those willing to donate their time to our cause.

We have many volunteer opportunities at our Sorrento Valley headquarters. We also need volunteers at other locations in the community, as well as remotely.

Whether you’re interested in sorting and packing produce for a family in need, supporting our food distributions, making personalized phone calls to thank our generous donors, or helping in another way — we’re glad you’re here!
