Corporate and Group Volunteering

Corporate and group volunteer shifts are available from Monday through Saturday. To ensure a successful event, select one group organizer to schedule your shift at least two weeks in advance. Please schedule two to three months ahead during the holiday season.

Request a shift using the following group volunteer request form. FSD will confirm your volunteer shift and send your Group Organizer a join code. Volunteers in your group will then be able to sign up for the selected shift by entering the code using our online system.

November and December 2019

Please note, volunteer groups requesting November and December 2019 dates will be part of our Teams for Good program.

  • If you are in a community group (service groups, nonprofit organizations, families, etc.) interested in joining Teams for Good, please fill out the group volunteer request form.

Distribution Center

Distribution center opportunities are best for large groups or those with school-aged children.

BackPack
Backpack: Fill bags with six pounds of produce and staple items on Wednesday and Thursdays morning and afternoon shifts. Children experiencing hunger receive these bags for nourishment over the weekend.

Reclamation
Sort food that has been pulled from grocery store shelves to prevent it from reaching the landfill (approximately 60% is still edible and nutritious). Volunteers check expiration dates against their extended best by date and then sort and box each food by type.

Label
Donated by manufacturers and retailers, volunteers label blank cans called “brites” with nutrition information.

Gleaning
Volunteers sort produce from the California Association of Food Banks and local farms. Varying differences in size, shape and color are not preferred for sale in local grocery stores.
