Volunteer Application Form

Second Harvest Logo

Thank you for your interest in joining the Volunteer Experience by applying to become a volunteer. Second Harvest could not operate at full capacity without the thousands of hours of volunteer work provided through the Volunteer Experience. Volunteers are involved in all aspects of Second Harvest and its programs. 

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age to offer their individual services without adult supervision, and adult supervisors must accompany volunteers ages 10 to 16 and must work beside the volunteer at all times. One adult supervisor is required for every 7 volunteers ages 10 to 16. We are unable to accept court ordered community service volunteers, volunteers currently on probation, and volunteers younger than 10 years of age.

Please review the Food Safety PowerPoint prior to starting your shift.
