Volunteers are a vital part of Second Harvest! We are the only food bank in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas, serving more than 100 nonprofit Partner Agencies across 19 counties. This reaches more than 15,000 individuals weekly and distributes 500,000 pounds of food monthly—this would not be possible without generous volunteers like YOU!
Whether you can give a few hours monthly, or commit to a weekly schedule, your gift of time helps build hunger-free communities.
You can become a Second Harvest Volunteer by submitting a Volunteer Application!
Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age to offer their individual services without adult supervision 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.
