We are halting new volunteer sign ups as a result of the current crisis. However, please be ready to help out as soon as we resume normal operations. In the meantime Greater Chicago Food Depository could use your help. When you volunteer as a Beyond Hunger representative we receive credits from GCFD. Find more information at www.chicagosfoodbank.org/volunteer.

Volunteers are critical to every aspect of our operation, providing over 2,000 hours of collective time every month.  Our volunteers have been rated #1 for the last 40 years (by us) for their determination, compassion, availability, and overall skill. Thank you for your interest in joining our mission to end local hunger!

A variety of volunteer shifts are available, during weekday, evening, and weekend hours.  We offer shifts that run the gamut, including data entry, repacking, serving Pantry guests, and unloading delivery trucks.  We hope to provide a volunteer opportunity for everyone, at every ability level.

If you have any questions about volunteering or the volunteer sign-up process, please contact Monnette Bariel, Volunteer Coordinator.
