Welcome to Foodlink’s Volunteer Calendar! To register for a volunteer shift, please select from the available options below. If you are a new volunteer, you will be promoted to complete our volunteer application before securing your spot. If you are a returning volunteer you will simply be promoted to "login" to secure your spot.  Due to the COVID-19 Health Crisis, Foodlink has suspended  various traditional projects and the court-mandated community service program. 

 Additionally, due to limited space and social distancing guidelines, Foodlink is unable to accommodate volunteer group reservations. All volunteers must register individually.
