There's no better way to build up your group's team spirit and camaraderie than through volunteering. SFBFS serves neighbors in need with dignity and respect and we welcome you to join our collective group working to inspire, educate and feed our community. We enjoy inviting corporate, school, youth, church and other types of groups down to share in the volunteer experience! Groups must be five people or more and ages 10 and up. We do not require attendance at a volunteer orientation for group volunteering. To book your group's volunteer date, please see the calendar below and click on the desired date to sign up.
If your group is interested in booking a regularly scheduled volunteer date (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.) please contact the Volunteer Services Assistant Manager.
For food sorting, groups assist at our Food Bank Services campus, (1951 Bell Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95838) to sort and bag food for our food distributions and Partner Agencies. We can accommodate groups of 5 – 50, depending on our needs.
For clothing, groups assist at our Family Services campus, (3333 Third Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95817) to sort, hang and distribute clothing at no cost to shoppers in need. We can accommodate groups of up to 15 – 30, depending on our needs.
At food distributions, groups will distribute fresh produce to families in need (offsite locations). We can accommodate groups of up to 3 – 4 people at food distributions. Please e-mail if you are interested in booking your group for a food distribution.
