Welcome to our volunteer program!

In order to make our volunteer process work as smoothly as possible, there are certain policies and procedures that our volunteers are asked to follow: outlined below.

Volunteers are needed to:

  • Assist in the warehouse

  • Assist at food distribution locations

  • Transport food to home-bound clients

  • Help with the annual food drive, fundraising, and special events


Volunteer Procedures and Information:

  • The Food Bank of Nevada County does not offer volunteer service hours for court mandated community service.

  • The minimum age to volunteer is 12 years old. Volunteers between the ages of 12-15 must volunteer with an adult, and volunteers 16-17 must volunteer with parental permission.

  • The Food Bank expects you to report and work as scheduled. Hours are recorded on a project log located in the warehouse. It is important that the volunteers sign in!

  • Follow volunteer guidelines, and work safely at all time.

  • Volunteers need to have a current Volunteer Application (MS Word) on file.

The Food Bank will:

  • Make every effort to provide safe working conditions. (Bathrooms and kitchens are available in the office and warehouse area.)

  • Help our volunteers select an assignment that meets their needs as well as the needs of
    the Food Bank.

  • Work with volunteers to make their experiences positive and rewarding.
