Volunteer at CFC

Comfort Food Community believes that food has the power to bring people together. Whether it is at our pantries, in the garden, or around the table sharing a meal, food offers the opportunity to build relationships with community members from all walks of life. 

Our volunteers are the beating heart of this organization. We could not meet the needs of the community without your support. We could not make our community a healthier place without your passion.

There is a lot of work to do and a lot of people involved in the doing of that work. In order to keep things running smoothly, we use a service called Volunteer Hub. Volunteer Hub is a web based software program that manages the registration and scheduling of volunteers.

Already have a Volunteer Hub account? 

  New Volunteers  

Please follow these steps to complete volunteer registration:

  • Create an account with Volunteer Hub. A notification will be sent to CFC Staff informing them of a new volunteer registration along with all of the registration information.

  • A CFC Staff person will reach out to schedule your orientation. We require that all new volunteers attend an initial orientation before signing up for a specific volunteer shift. Orientations are scheduled on a rolling basis at a time that is convenient for the volunteer and the staff member. Orientations are about an hour long and cover policy, procedures and the volunteer opportunities available through Comfort Food. We get to know more about you and you get to know more about us!

  • Start signing-up for shifts! Once you have attended orientation, your Volunteer Hub account will receive permission to begin signing up for volunteer activities. Check out the schedule, make a selection, and start getting involved.
