Foodbank LogoFrom the  Central and Eastern North Carolina Foodbank:

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Food Bank's mission. Every day, Food Bank volunteers are making a tangible contribution to our communities. Last year, Food Bank volunteers gave a recording breaking 253,567 hours of their time. This is equivalent to 122 full-time employees -- literally doubling the size of our staff! Volunteers are vital to ensuring nutritious food reaches nearly 630,000 individuals living in food-insecure households each year.


Warehouse Dress & Guidelines: The Food Bank aims to create a fun and safe environment for our volunteers at our warehouse. Please familiarize yourself with the rules and recommendations for working at the warehouse.

  • Closed toed shoes are required. Volunteers who do not wear closed toed shoes will not be permitted in the warehouse.
  • Volunteers may not use any motorized equipment (forklifts or electric pallet jacks) and may only use manual equipment (manual pallet jacks) with proper training.
  • Food or drinks other than water are not allowed on the warehouse floor.
  • Please do not use headphones or phones (even for texting) while working in the warehouse.
  • Volunteers can park in the volunteer lot to the left of the building (follow the blue light pole signs and blue on the building).
