Our volunteers are critical to our work year-round. City Harvest requires all volunteers abide by our updated Volunteer Policies (available on our Volunteer Portal).

Please check our Volunteer Portal for upcoming opportunities. Haven’t volunteered with City Harvest before? You’ll need to attend a virtual orientation before joining us out in the field.


Individual Volunteer Opportunities

City Harvest volunteers help ensure that good food doesn’t go to waste. Whether you have experience in teaching and nutrition, care about improving food access, are interested in working with local farmers, or simply want to give back to your community, your passion and time are important resources in the fight against hunger.
