Volunteering Across the U.S.

We do a lot to fight hunger right here in the U.S. with people like Monseratt, a high school student in Texas. He doesn’t have lots of cash to donate to causes he cares about, but he has the time (and the energy of a teenager). So he volunteers with his friends at our Texas distribution center, and they have fun building and filling the food, essentials and Avon boxes that Feed the Children distributes to Americans who need a hand filling their pantries.

Join us to feed kids all across the country. Follow these four steps:

  1. Read through the options, and look for categories that fit your skills, time and location.
  2. Create a profile on MyVolunteerPage.com.
  3. Complete the online Volunteer Application. It’s a little long, but when you answer all the questions, it really helps us match you to opportunities.
  4. Follow our Facebook page. We often post calls for volunteers at concerts, festivals and other events where we need lots of hands.

Popular Volunteer Opportunities

Food Distributions

Come volunteer at a food distribution to be the hands that fight hunger. You can help us get the event set up, greet the kids and families as they arrive, hand out the boxes of food and essentials (that just might be the best part), help them carry their boxes, and help us clean up after the event.

Box Brigade

Box Brigade volunteers do essential work in our distribution centers. Their hands-on help includes food and hygiene box preparation and assembly, and product sorting and screening. If you’re near any of our distribution centers — in Oklahoma City, OK; LaVergne, TN;  Elkhart, IN; Ontario, CA and Bethlehem, PA — sign up to join the Box Brigade.

Artist Program Events

Artist Program event volunteers staff promotional tables and distribute materials at Feed the Children marketing events. If you like talking with people at concerts, festivals, conferences, church activities or corporate events, volunteer with our Artist Program.

Teacher Stores

Our five Teacher Stores — in Oklahoma City, OK; LaVergne, TN; Elkhart, IN; Bethlehem, PA; Ontario, CA — are a great place for people who are passionate about education to support at-risk children in their communities. You can help kids get ahead by helping their teachers stock up on materials for free. Come to the Teacher Store to sort products, stock shelves, and assist with registration and checkout.
