What is the minimum age to volunteer?

Because we serve as a working warehouse, we recommend all volunteers be twelve (12) years of age or older to volunteer at any of our facilities. 

·        Ages 12 through 13: Must be accompanied by an adult - parent, guardian or other chaperone. An individual waiver form must be signed by the parent/guardian. Parents can sign up online and bring their child. 

·        Ages 14 through 17:  An adult chaperone is not required, but the minor must present an individual waiver form signed by a parent/guardian. Volunteers age 14 and up can sign up online.

Age requirement exceptions: We do make exceptions for scouting, youth and school groups that include children age eight (8) to eleven (11). The group leader must contact the volunteer services team at volunteer.services@firstfoodbank.org to discuss the volunteer opportunity requirements
