One of the most meaningful ways to join the fight against hunger is to spend some time as a volunteer at the Arkansas Foodbank. There’s no way we can feed the hundreds of thousands of Arkansans without the help of our volunteers.

We offer several volunteer opportunities:

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).
