New Volunteers-2023

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Loaves & Fishes! 

Without our dedicated team of volunteers, we would not be able to serve our Island Community in the manner in which we do!  A lot of donated food arrives into our warehouse which needs to be sorted and distributed, and more and more empties arrive at our yard needing to be sorted so their cash value can help fund our operations.  We are super grateful to have such strong volunteer commitment to help us with these things enabling us to meet our goals of getting food into the hands of those who need it.

Becoming a Loaves & Fishes Volunteer:

Before becoming a volunteer with us, there are a few things which need to happen.  You will be asked to:

  • Fill out an online profile
  • Supply us with a Reference with the link you will be given once you submit your profile
  • Attend an online volunteer orientation session

Volunteer Orientations are held 3 times/month either in person or online various days and times of day. The orientation, which is just over 90 minutes,  will help you to better understand our organization and the current opportunities.  (Click HERE to read an article one inspired volunteer wrote after attending the orientation session.)

Volunteer Tasks are varied. You can click HERE to see the type of things you might do as a volunteer.

From a Happy Volunteer:

"​Volunteering for Loaves and Fishes has been a wonderful experience that I look forward to each week.  I've met many friendly faces and helpful people, and the conversations I've had with others during my volunteer sessions have been positive and uplifting. I often leave with a smile on my face.

I have to say, I've truly enjoyed working in the warehouse, and find it purposeful and fulfilling because I get to see the large quantities of food that come in for distribution. Food that will fuel lives, and food that might otherwise get thrown out and wasted if not for the organization. Thank you for letting me be a part of it all."  

If you are ready to join our volunteer team, you can take the first step by filling in your online profile by clicking HERE.  

We hope to hear from you soon!
