How Do I Get
Involved ?

 Our volunteer positions require a six-month commitment.

 

• Most of our volunteer shifts are on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and are 3 hours long. The shifts are staggered between 12:30 and 4:30 pm.

 

• We also use volunteers to pick up food donations on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays before the pantry opens at 2pm.

 

• We have occasional need for Saturday volunteers between 9:30am and 12:30pm. These positions are one-time volunteer opportunities and do not require a six-month commitment.

 

To apply for an open volunteer position, please email us at volunteer@berkeleyfoodpantry.org. We will arrange for you to come into the pantry to learn about the position and to determine if it is a good fit for you.

 

If our currently open positions do not work for you, or if there are no open positions, please check back  from time to time since our need for volunteers changes regularly.

 

If you would like to be placed on our volunteer waiting list, please email us at volunteer@berkeleyfoodpantry.org.
