Welcome to the volunteer team!
Welcome to the IFCB Volunteer team! Now that you're officially registered as a volunteer please join us for a new volunteer orientation. We'll cover all the stuff that you need to know on your first day in a quick, 30-minute info session.
Orientations are required for all new volunteers. Orientations are held every Monday and Friday (except on holidays or if a specific event has been cancelled due to conflict).
A tour of the food and clothing bank
Who we serve and how we serve (Mission, Vision & Values)
A brief overview of IFCB special programs
Customer service overview and expectations
How to register for volunteer shifts and how to drop shifts if something comes up
How to show up prepared / What to do on your first day
If you would like a tutorial to learn how to use the volunteer dashboard, please plan to stay an additional 15-20 minutes so a staff member can assist you.
Mondays | 4:00-4:30 p.m.
Fridays | 9:30-10:00 a.m. & 1:00-1:30 p.m.
Orientations do NOT occur on holidays.

Please ring the doorbell when you arrive & sign-in on the clipboard on the front desk.
Free public parking is available in the lot directly across the street from the food bank and by the community center. Free street parking is also available alongside the food bank. We kindly ask that volunteers avoid parking in the side alley (which we use for deliveries) or in parking spaces designated for Spa Chi and other local businesses. If you are attending a Monday night orientation, please park by the community center to open parking spaces for clients who will begin shopping at 5:00 pm.
