VOLUNTEER


Organizations, groups and individuals are invited to donate their talent, time and skills to help Tarrant Area Food Bank end hunger in local communities. Volunteers are the heart and soul of the food bank. Each year, more than 7,000 volunteers give more than 70,000 hours of service, thereby empowering the Food Bank and its network of partner charities to provide approximately 25 million meals to North Texans each year.

Featured Opportunities in Summer 2014

  • Help families receive local farm-fresh food. By partnering with WIC (Women, Infants and Children) clinics in Tarrant County, Tarrant Area Food Bank is connecting local farmers and WIC clients.  From June through September, WIC clients will be able to receive vouchers for fresh produce which they may immediately redeem with farmers set up at the clinic locations.  Adult volunteers are needed weekday mornings. Bilingual/Spanish-speaking is a plus. Training required. Contact Robyn to learn more.
  • Share your talent in the kitchen and passion for healthy food by volunteering as a culinary instructor, nutrition instructor, course assistant, course manager or photographer for Cooking Matters®, a program of Share Our Strength. Attend an upcoming Cooking Matters® Orientation for Volunteers to learn more.
  • Fill tummies this school year with the school pantry program. We’ve partnered with Target to run Meals for Minds, a school pantry program that occurs monthly on the Northside of Fort Worth and provides fresh food to enrolled students and their families. Volunteers who are 15 years or older are needed the 3rd Tuesday afternoon each month during the school year to help unload and distribute food directly to families in need.  Background check required.
