Volunteers Are Vital

Volunteers are critical to ending hunger in our community. Every month we rely on their generous support, which would otherwise require the work of 45 full-time staff members.

Spend a two-hour shift with friends, family, and colleagues and help feed our neighbors in need. Build team spirit and company morale volunteering with your business or organization in the REFB warehouse. Enhance your cooking skills volunteering in the REFB Kitchen Collective program. Provide support at an REFB benefit event or at one of our many food distribution sites. There are so many fun and rewarding ways to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of those facing hunger in our community.

Children between the ages of 12 and 13 are welcome to volunteer as long as they are accompanied by an adult at all times. Children 14 years of age and older can volunteer independently.

First time volunteers can drop-in to the REFB for a 30-minute New Volunteer Orientation to learn more about various volunteer positions. Orientations are held Monday through Friday at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm at 3990 Brickway Boulevard in Santa Rosa. Orientations can also be arranged by appointment, Monday through Thursday, at 4:00 pm.

Individual volunteers can sign up for a shift online, via the link below. For more information, or to schedule a group, please e-mail REFB Volunteer Services at volunteers@refb.org.
