Volunteer with Us!
We love volunteers! They are a vital support for our small team. Our opportunities are a tad reduced right now, but we think you will love the selections!
Help us model a more impactful feeding program by dropping off wholesome food for multiple days at a couple of local homes.
Impact: Typically, our volunteers are responsible for the delivery of about 3,000 meals a month.
Requirements: Sign up more than 24 hours before your shift, have a valid license and car
Impact: The squad received 12 texts last month and filled 11 of those shifts which stabilizes logistics so we can add more volunteer routes.
Requirements: Car, License

Education and outreach events, such as helping with Science Nights at local schools, are a great way to educate the community about FoodChain’s mission!

If you are passionate about educating students on the benefits of local food, this is a great opportunity for you! Volunteers will assist with school presentations and activities, as well as the expansion of the program in Fayette County schools.
