Make a difference in your community!

There are many ways you can serve your community and be a vital part of Feed the Children’s mission. Together, we can bring food, essentials – and hope to families that need our support.

Building Boxes of Food and Essentials

Both groups and individuals can volunteer to build boxes filled with food and essentials that will be delivered to families in need across the United States. Volunteers make our food-distribution programs possible by sorting and screening products, and helping assemble boxes loaded with much needed food and essentials.

"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."

— Monserrat, High School Student, Texas

Help at a Teacher Store

Feed the Children serves teachers and students all year round through our five Teacher Store locations. We offer free school supplies and books to educators from preapproved, Title I school districts. The Teacher Store is a great place for people who are passionate about education and helping children to get the supplies needed for a successful school year. Volunteers can help by sorting products, stocking shelves, and assisting with teacher registration and checkout.

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

— Sharon, Retired Teacher, Indiana
