Volunteers play a critical role in the success of Georgia Mountain Food Bank. Our robust volunteer program is made up of dedicated individuals who wish to serve with us to end hunger in our area.

How Volunteers Help

From checking for expired food in our warehouse to packing up distribution boxes to helping at our annual Empty Bowl Lunch, it takes many helpful hands to feed the more than 1 in 5 north Georgians who are hungry. Individuals, church groups, retirement communities, Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts Troops, school groups and civic/governmental organizations are welcome to join us in our work through volunteer service!
