Become A Volunteer
At the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, we are reminded daily of the generosity of others. We are truly grateful for the thousands of hours that hundreds of individuals so unselfishly give to support our mission.
Everyday our warehouse is filled with a diverse group of individuals that want to give back to their community. We are supported by not only individuals, but our volunteers also include:
- College & University Groups
- Corporate Groups
- Civic Organizations
- Church Groups
- Local Schools
- Athletic Organizations
- Youth Groups
