West Texas Food Bank

Volunteer Your Time


The West Texas Food Bank needs your help to fight hunger!

Volunteerism is the heartbeat of the Food Bank. Just a couple of hours of volunteering can make a lasting impact. We need you to help us continue our mission of fighting hunger.

Last year, the Food Bank distributed millions of pounds of food to 19 West Texas counties. Before distribution, food is sorted, processed, and packed, often by the loving hands of a volunteer.

The Food Bank can accommodate volunteer groups of all sizes, from families and individuals to large groups. Volunteers will be asked to participate in tasks that include sorting incoming donations, processing and organizing items for distribution, and packaging emergency boxes.

Volunteers must be 15 years or older to volunteer at the Food Bank without a parent or guardian. Children 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult at a 1:1 ratio. We require a two-hour volunteering minimum.

DRESS CODE: Volunteers must adhere to a dress code appropriate for working in a warehouse environment. We do not allow spaghetti strap shirts, short shorts, leggings, or clothes which are too revealing. Most importantly, you will not be able to volunteer in open toed shoes, including flip-flops, sandals, or heels. Volunteer comfort and safety are very important to us.
