Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.
Want that “feel good” feeling you get when helping others?
Volunteer at the Food Bank of Western New York to help those in need of one of life’s most necessary commodities … food. Help to sort and repackage food in our warehouse and know that your efforts will put food on the table of a family in need in our community. We need both individuals and groups to help with this effort. To sort food in the warehouse, you must be 16 years of age.
For more information, please contact Christina Potempa firstname.lastname@example.org or (716) 852-1305.
Please complete the Volunteer Application .pdf form. This can be filled online in your browser or saved to your computer. Completed forms must be emailed or mailed or brought in by the volunteer.
We need volunteers in the office during peak times or, if you enjoy working on special events, we have a variety of those where volunteers are needed. Whether you have a day or just a few hours to spare … we can find a place for you!

Tuesday –Thursday 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Friday – 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Saturday – 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Saturdays are generally reserved for groups and should be scheduled well in advance.
All visits must be scheduled.
