Volunteer Scheduling



The Food Bank of Northern Nevada continues to monitor the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation and its impact on the communities we serve. We are working with local, state, and federal authorities as well as Feeding America and other members of our Food Bank network around the nation to take necessary precautionary measures to keep those we serve, our employees, our volunteers, and our partners safe.


If you are feeling well and wish to join us in serving our community, we would love to have you volunteer with the Food Bank.  Please help us in taking the following precautions during your time volunteering:

  • Volunteers aged 10+
  • Face Masks/Coverings: Masks or face coverings are REQUIRED for all volunteers.  Please bring a mask or face covering with you when volunteering at the warehouse or any of our distribution sites.
  • Volunteers will be working in small groups of 10-12 people with tasks set up to allow for social distancing.
    • Please help us in observing social distancing by keeping 6+ft distance from others while working.
  • Because it is so important to maintain our small group count, please only attend volunteer sessions that you have a confirmed registration for.
  • Wash your hands frequently, including before beginning tasks and at the end of your volunteer session.
  • Volunteers are required to wear gloves during all tasks.
  • If you are not feeling well, we kindly ask that you not attend volunteer activities.

Did you know many employers will make a monetary donation on behalf of an employee as a match for their volunteer hours?  Check to see if your company provides a volunteer match to double the impact your time spent volunteering with the Food Bank will have on our neighbors in need.
