  • Individuals – Please visit our CERVIS Volunteer Sign-Up system to see a list of available opportunities and register online.

Volunteer Policies & Information

In order to ensure the safety of our volunteers, the food in the warehouse, and that all of our volunteers have a good and productive time, we ask that you follow these guidelines when you visit our facility:

  • You will be working in a warehouse environment.
  • Dress Code: Closed toe shoes are required in the warehouse. Though the volunteer space is climate controlled, there are sometimes extremes in temperature, you may want to bring a jacket.
  • No food or drink in the warehouse. Cold, bottled water will be provided for you. In order to meet health and safety standards, any other beverages or food that are brought in will have to be left in the volunteer lounge.
  • Parking: Please park in the Southeast lot in front of the Sunderland Volunteer Center.
    Leave your valuables at home or in your car. We have limited lockers for volunteers to keep valuables in.
  • Age Requirements: Any volunteer age 8-17 must have adult supervision (over age 18). No one under age 8 is allowed in the warehouse. No car seats or strollers are allowed in the warehouse. We ask that you not bring small children with you for your volunteer experience.
  • Check-in: Please check in at the volunteer desk when you arrive. You will be escorted to the volunteer activity and given instructions as to the process for the work you will be completing.
  • Opt-Out: You may choose not to receive email communications by contacting us directly at info@kansasfoodbank.org. Upon receipt and processing of an “opt out” request, Kansas Food Bank will, within its commercially reasonable amount of time, remove your information from any future marketing communications.

Waiver of Liability
By volunteering at the Kansas Food Bank, you are assuming all risk of injury associated with your volunteer participation on the premises of the Food Bank or Food Bank activities conducted off-site. You are not considered an employee of the Food Bank and are not, therefore, covered by the Food Bank’s workers’ compensation insurance.

You agree to comply with all posted safety instructions and follow the directions provided by Food Bank staff and assigned supervisors. Firearms and weapons are not permitted on Food Bank premises.

Photo/Video Release
By entering our premise, you agree that the Food Bank and its representatives may take photographs, videos, and other images of you, and you consent to the Food Bank’s use of the photographs, videos, and other images taken or produced.
