We offer diverse ways to become part of the solution to hunger in San Benito County. Without our volunteers, it would not be possible for our small staff to serve 6,000 community members every month. Check out these volunteer opportunities:

COVID-19 update: At this time we do not recommend that seniors (65+) or anyone with a chronic health condition volunteer. If you are sick please cancel your shift – any volunteer that is showing signs of illness will be asked to leave and return when well.  We are screening volunteers (temperature check, etc.) in accordance with County guidelines.
