Volunteer groups

Groups of four or more volunteers should email GLFB’s volunteer program manager, at volunteers@glfoodbank.org. Please include in your group scheduling request the approximate number of people in your group and any date or time preferences. Please provide plenty of time when making a request, as many of our shifts book two to three weeks out.
