Volunteers like you are essential to our vision of an Oklahoma where no one goes hungry.
Through this on-site volunteer experience, volunteers like you sort, pack and prepare food for a variety of Regional Food Bank Programs. Activities may include:
- Assembling sacks of nutritious food for the Food for Kids Backpack Program
- Packing Commodity Supplemental Food Program boxes full of food for seniors living on fixed incomes
- Sorting and packing bread, produce, package meals and/or cans
- Tagging bags
Because the Regional Food Bank's inventory changes daily, the Regional Food Bank cannot guarantee volunteers who sign up to work in the Volunteer Center will pack and prepare food for a specific program.
The minimum age requirement is 8 years. Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
As a reminder, volunteers will enter through the Volunteer Center entrance, not the main entrance. Please look for the double doors toward the north end of the building with the Volunteer Center sign on the building.
**Volunteer groups and individuals that are 30 minutes late to the volunteer shift start time will be unable to volunteer.**
During the Month of October the Regional Food Bank is asking for your help in stocking senior pantries by participating in the Senior Pantry Food Drive.
The senior pantries give residents monthly access to a fully stocked client-choice food pantry within their building, eliminating transportation barriers for older clients who are often disabled or have limited mobility. Senior pantries are tailored to the nutritional needs and food preferences of seniors living in smaller households, featuring easy-open packaging, smaller portions, foods that are simple to prepare and senior specific toiletry itemsYou can directly support this effort by donating a Senior Pantry Pack of nonperishable items when you come to volunteer.Learn More!
