The Arkansas Foodbank can accommodate volunteers groups of all sizes from families to larger groups. Volunteer opportunities include, but are not limited to, sorting incoming food donations, processing and organizing items for distribution, preparing backpack kits for children in schools, office work, delivering senior boxes, and assisting with our mobile distributions events.

Last year, more than 11,000 volunteers donated more than 33,000 hours of time to help us in our mission of fighting hunger in Arkansas. Sign up to volunteer for any of our one-time events or one of our ongoing service projects. Use your talents to benefit Arkansas children, seniors, and families in need.

Check out volunteer opportunities below. We look forward to you volunteering with us soon!

 

 

Group Volunteers

Each day we welcome corporate employees, church groups, schools, clubs and other organizations who use this as a worthwhile team-building experience. Several businesses use our community room for annual or quarterly meetings then help sort food in the afternoon. Group limit is 25 people per shift.

Dress Code: Please dress appropriately for volunteering in the warehouse. You will be boxing, sorting, and moving items so we highly recommend wearing closed-toe shoes.

Age Restrictions: Volunteers must be at least 10 years old to volunteer in our warehouse on weekdays.

Volunteers must be at least 8 years old to volunteer on Saturday work days and during any after warehouse business hour volunteer opportunities (Family Nights, Stamp Out Hunger etc.)

Volunteers 8-15 years old must be accompanied by an adult (18+ years old).

Groups of volunteers require one adult chaperon for every five youth (ages 8-15 years old).
Groups of volunteers require one adult chaperon for every ten youth (ages 16-18 years old).
