Volunteer Opportunties

Only through your efforts can we achieve our mission of targeting hunger to serve and educate through community partnerships. We need volunteers every day to help sort and pack food donations, distribute meals for hungry children, as well as assist with special events and administrative support. When you donate your time to Second Harvest Food Bank of Champaign, Clark and Logan Counties (CCL), you become a partner in the fight against hunger in Southwest Ohio.

Second Harvest Food Bank CCL will begin accepting a limited number of volunteers in critical areas starting Monday, June 8, 2020.

For our available volunteer hours or to receive email updates about upcoming volunteer opportunities, please contact Melena at (937) 325-8715 ext. 101 or email: mprasertsak@theshfb.org.
