Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.

Volunteer at FeedMore WNY to help those in need of one of life’s most necessary commodities — food.  It’s easy, fun, and volunteers make it possible for us to get the work done.  Volunteers are essential at all levels of food bank operations, from sorting and repackaging food to helping at fundraising events.  Individuals and groups are welcome. All opportunities have specific age and skill requirements and require advance registration.

In order to volunteer, please fill out our electronic volunteer form below. (Volunteers under 18 need to submit a paper application.)  After we receive your application, please allow us up to two weeks for processing.  For more information, please email Justina Cincotti at JCincotti@feedmorewny.org or call 716-852-1305.

Volunteer Groups

We are happy to host groups of people coming together from work, church or school.  We can host groups up to 20 people in our warehouse. For youth groups, children between the ages 14 and 15 years old will need a parent present throughout their entire volunteer shift. We require one adult chaperone per 6 children, ages 16 and 17.

To explore the possibility of scheduling a group, please email Justina Cincotti at jcincotti@feedmorewny.org with your request.  All group members will be required to fill out a volunteer application and review all volunteer materials.

Kids and Youth Volunteers

We know that many families want to volunteer together, and that school-aged children and young adults are also eager to help.  To ensure the safety of volunteers in an active warehouse setting, volunteers ages 14 to 15 must to be accompanied by a parent or guardian while volunteering. Volunteers under the age of 18 are asked to submit a volunteer application signed by their parent or guardian.

Community Service

Have you been referred to us by the local or state court system for court ordered community service?  Please call 716-852-1305 to learn about the additional information needed before scheduling your volunteer work.
