Become a Volunteer

Our Daily Bread is able to serve the community through 26 local pantries and over 350 volunteers, including our Executive Director. Throughout the year, these volunteers contribute over 22,000 hours of service to Our Daily Bread Food Bank and our communities. We are able to serve our community because of our wonderful volunteers.

Warehouse volunteers help us to unload trucks with donated food. They also help us to pack out food for our different pantries. Warehouse volunteers usually serve during regular office hours - which are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 8AM until 2PM.


We currently host 27 pantries that are facilitated through local churches. These pantries generally come to our warehouse to collect food, then travel back to their church to pack boxes. One day per month, these pantries open their churches to their clients to pick up food boxes.

Hot Meal Sites & Cook Team
