Thousands of volunteers from all walks of life lend their time and talents to support the work of the Kansas Food Bank. Some volunteer once, others on an almost full-time basis.
We accept volunteers between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Volunteers must be 18 years of age to be in the warehouse.
Hunger in America 2014
We are now accepting volunteers to assist us with the largest nationwide hunger study. The Hunger Study begins in April 2013 and will conclude in August. For more information please call Denise at 265-3663.
Our biggest need is for volunteers to help fill 6,500 zip-bags of food per week for our Food-4-Kids backpack program. These bags of single-serve, kid-friendly foods are distributed to the state’s hungriest kids, ensuring that they will have something to eat over weekends when they are away from school meal programs. Groups can schedule a time to volunteer by contacting Larry Gunkel at (316) 265-3663 or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, we can also use volunteers for Office Work (answering phones, filing, copying, etc.) and/or Warehouse Work (sorting donated food, loading vehicles, organizing). Groups interested in volunteering in some capacity other than filling backpacks, contact us and indicate the type of work you want to help with, how many people, when, etc. and we will look forward to your help! Contact Larry Gunkel by calling (316) 265-3663 or by email, email@example.com.
