Individual Volunteer

Connect with your community.

Volunteering is an incredible experience at Food Bank of Wyoming. Here, you join an ever-growing community of individuals who, at their core, share one very important commitment—helping others. If you haven’t volunteered with us before, we encourage you to try a shift and see how it feels. We bet you’ll soon be signing up again and again. For the companionship. For the community. For yourself.

Schedule & Tasks

Volunteer shifts are generally available during the following times:

Tuesday–Friday
8:00 a.m.–10:30 a.m.
12:30 p.m.–3:00 p.m.

Most of our volunteer opportunities take place in an active warehouse setting. Many (but not all) of our opportunities require the ability to move freely, stand, walk for long periods of time, bend, reach, and lift up to 30 pounds. Please notify a Volunteer Coordinator if there are any limitations (physical or developmental) that we should be aware of, so we can best accommodate you.

Our needs change daily. We place volunteers in areas as needed to ensure we are effectively fulfilling our mission. Check the Volunteer Hub for more additional opportunities.

Please note: We place volunteers in different areas because our needs change daily. Not all opportunities are available every day at every distribution center. We appreciate your flexibility to volunteer where you and/or your group can help us the most.

Get your group together. For good.

Volunteering as a group can be even more fun.
