Feeding America San Diego relies on the support of over 10,000 volunteers annually to help make it possible to distribute over 25 million meals each year. Thank you for your interest in volunteering and making it possible for us to continue to fight hunger in San Diego.
•The Distribution Center is a working warehouse, close-toed shoes are required. Tennis shoes or running shoes work great!
•The Distribution Center is neither cooled nor heated – we urge you to dress accordingly.
• Bringing work gloves is recommended, but not required.
•Wear proper work clothes that you do not mind getting dirty.
•Leave valuables in your vehicle or at home.
•Please no horseplay in the warehouse.
If a Shift is "Full" or "Reserved"
That means we have plenty of volunteers scheduled to complete all of our projects. Volunteer spaces are available on a first come basis, and once a shift is "full" or "reserved" we are unable to accomodate additional volunteers to avoid overcrowding. Please check back, as we open additional volunteer spaces on a monthly basis.
Youth Volunteer Reminders
-Each volunteer must be registered online. Parents can register their children just like they did themselves, using the same email address but a different user name.
-All volunteers must be 6 years or older to enter Distribution Center.
-Volunteers under 16 must have a parent or guardian sign up to volunteer with them.
-Volunteers under 18 years need a paper waiver with a parent or guardian signature on their first volunteer shift.
Group Volunteer Reminders
If you are volunteering with a group be sure to sign in with your unique join code. After you do your shift will change from "reserved" or "full" to available for sign up until there are no more spaces left.
For more information on how to request a volunteer event for a group of 10 or more volunteers visit Groups
Court Ordered Volunteer Reminders
All Court Ordered Volunteers must be cleared by the Volunteer Department prior to first volunteer shift. Contact the Volunteer Department at email@example.com with your request to volunteer as a Court Ordered Volunteer prior to your first scheduled volunteer shift.
