“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”
Weld Food Bank understands the importance of volunteers. The men and women who give of their time to help in our warehouse, deliver food to seniors, stand out in the rain at a Mobile Food Pantry, and countless other acts of kindness do so because they have a heart for what we do. Our success is dependent upon those individuals. We invite you to consider volunteering at Weld Food Bank.
We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities including weekdays, some nights and one Saturday a month. We have recently rolled out a new volunteer software to give you more control of your schedule. Follow any of the below links to our VolunteerHub software to schedule your next volunteer time. If you haven’t created an account, you will be prompted to do so. With this account you will be able to see your upcoming schedule, review your hours, and much more!
Any volunteer who previously used Volgistics to manage their schedule already has a profile. Contact Elizabeth Jorgenson for more information regarding accessing your account: [email protected].
If you need assistance signing up, please call us at 970-356-2199.
The following tasks are available at various times throughout the day:
- Food Distribution– Pack carts and take them to client’s cars.
- Food Pack– Help with the need of the day which may include sorting and bagging various produce, building food boxes, or assembling Backpack bags.
For individuals who are unable to join us during the weekday, we offer occasional evening volunteer opportunities from 5-7pm on select days. During this time you will help us with the need of the day which may include sorting and bagging produce, building food boxes, or assembling Backpack bags.
On the fourth Saturday of every month, Weld Food Bank opens for an additional distribution. Volunteers help us pack carts and take the food to client’s cars, and sort and bag produce. There are two three-hour shifts available every Saturday distribution.
Mobile Food Pantry Volunteering
Our Mobile Food Pantry travels to sites around Weld County to distribute healthy, perishable foods such as produce, meat and dairy. Our sites are currently in a drive thru model where clients stay in their vehicles. We need volunteers at these sites to help load food into clients’ cars.

We hold various special events throughout the year including weekend food drives, a beer event in Windsor called Hops for Hunger, a holiday fundraiser called Beaujolais Nouveau, and more! Follow the link below to see all the opportunities to help out with any upcoming special events.
