People just like you helped the Greater Lansing Food Bank provide more than seven million pounds of emergency food in 2013. They didn’t write a check. They donated their time.
The Greater Lansing Food Bank is always looking for volunteers to help us reach our goal of making sure no one goes hungry in our communities. In 2014, volunteers logged nearly 30,000 hours – we could never pay staff to do this work and still fulfill our mission.
Want to volunteer but not sure where to start?

At the GLFB we try to be flexible to your needs and interests as a volunteer. If you have a skill you’d like to use but don’t find anything that fits in our current opportunities, let us know.
The GLFB organizes crews of volunteers to harvest crops at the request of area growers. The food is then distributed to food pantries, human service organizations, residents of subsidized housing, and others in need.
We welcome all community-service volunteer hours. Contact us for more information.
