Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Community Food & Outreach Center!

Volunteers diversify and expand the services that we are able to provide the families and children we see on our campus every day, and we rely on volunteers to help these hurting families. Volunteers from our community support each of our programs. Each day people like you help us stock our Cost Share Grocery Program’s shelves, sort clothing in our Community Thrift Center, greet and assist families at our welcome desk, and much more. Hope truly does begin with you!
