Volunteer Opportunities

The Josephine County Food Bank thrives on the support of our volunteers. Our mission is only possible through the hard work and support of our volunteers, who generously donate their time and energy to ensure that our community has access to healthy food.

Getting Started as a Volunteer

Raptor Creek Farm

Assist farm staff with weeding, prepping soil, harvesting, sowing seed and all aspects of growing food for our community.

Food Demos

Special Events

We are always in need of volunteers for special events like food drives and community outreach!

Pop-up Pantries

We run two pop-up pantries in Wolf Creek and Kerby and need volunteers to help with food distribution at these events.

Community Service

Volunteer shifts are available for court-mandated or other types of community service requiring formal verification.

Grants Pass Food Project

On the 2nd Saturday of every even month, we pick up food donated to the Grants Pass Food Project. Become a neighborhood coordinator or help sort food on pickup days.
