Special Requirements

https://www.sfmfoodbank.org/volunteer/in-the-warehouse/ REVIEW THE WEBSITE for minimum ages at each location! Contact us at 415-282-1900, x 244 or email volunteer@sfmfoodbank.org. Although we have shifts 7 days a week, only certain days are open to youth. Please pay attention to the age limits when booking.  Weekdays are limited to volunteers 11+. On Saturdays we welcome volunteers 8+ and Sundays are 4+. For middle school students, we ask for a 1:5 youth to adult ratio. That decreases to 1:1 for elementary and younger youth (for a weekend). Please include adults in your reservation count when booking.

How It Makes A Difference

Volunteers in our warehouse are critical to getting food ready for delivery. Work done in the warehouse allows us to distribute more and different kinds of food (carrots, apples, oranges, rice, oats, etc.) and is delivered to the community in the days after a shift.
