Getting food out to the community is a critical need during this time. We are immensely grateful for the help of our volunteers. 

The health and safety of our volunteers, staff, partners, and the community is always our number one priority.  

2/15/2022 UPDATE:  Effective February15, 2022, the Houston Food Bank will no longer require volunteers, clients and visitors to wear a face-covering while in the building,
regardless of vaccine status
.  T
emperature checks will remain in effect for everyone upon entry.  

Please help us plan the safest volunteer experience possible by registering in advance online.  All available volunteer shifts for the next 3 months are listed on the calendar below.

NOTE:  In the best interest of volunteers and staff, please be aware that we have reduced the maximum number of volunteers per shift to observe recommended social distancing practices.  Due to these safety limits, some of our regular shifts may already be closed.  If your preferred shift is not available, please select another to join us in helping others in need in our community.

Please Note: In order for the Houston Food Bank to verify student hours for schools or online verification sites, a student must either:

  • Create a Volunteer Profile in our system, register in advance and SCAN-IN with the Confirmation Email QR code.  For multiple shifts on the same day, scanning-in is required for EACH SHIFT.  By using this method, volunteer hours reports are always available for you to print directly from your Volunteer Profile.
  • Request an official (embossed) Hours Verification Letter at the end of your shift, available at our Welcome Desk.  If this option is chosen, we will NOT be able to verify those hours without assessing the original documents.
  • For all hours verification questions or requests, please contact kreynolds@houstonfoodbank.org
