Why Volunteer at RFB?

Richmond Food Bank volunteers:

  • collect, sort, pack, and distribute donated food;
  • deliver food to those who cannot leave home;
  • help to organize our warehouse;
  • represent us at community events;
  • provide outreach and information to our clients;
  • serve as directors on our board;
  • much, much more

Volunteering has many benefits; it is a great way to learn new skills, stay active, make new friends, and to quote RFB volunteer Ken “give back to the community and feel good about it at the same time.”

Annually, volunteers give over 30 000 hours of their time to the Richmond Food Bank.
