Caring neighbors make all the difference!

We invite you to learn about the many opportunities to serve your community as an active and vital part of Feed the Children. Together, we can bring help and hope to children and families in need!

Check out how you can spend a little time making a big difference. 


Comprised of both groups and individuals, the Volunteer Box Brigade provides the hands that bring hope across the country. These distribution center volunteers make Feed the Children’s domestic food-distribution programs possible by sorting and screening products and preparing and assembling food and essentials boxes that our trucks deliver to our neighbors in need.

I volunteer because I feel that at Feed the Children I really do make a difference. Each box of food or necessities that I help prepare is going to go to a family in need, and I enjoy being part of the process.

Volunteers are a valuable part of our administrative teams in all of our facilities across the country. These volunteers help ensure that Feed the Children operates efficiently every day to help those in need.


Feed the Children operates Teacher Stores—which offer free school materials and books to educators in preapproved school districts in select states. In fiscal year 2016, Feed the Children hosted 21,376 teacher visits and gave away more than $6.8 million in teaching supplies and more than 869,000 books. The Teacher Stores are a great place for people who are passionate about education to support at-risk children in their communities. You can help children get ahead by helping their teachers stock up on free materials. Come to the Teacher Stores to sort products, stock shelves, and assist with teacher registration and checkout.

Volunteering with Feed the Children keeps me involved and makes me feel useful.
