The most important ingredient is YOU, the volunteer!

There are many ways to volunteer at Food At First. Each and every volunteer is important in helping us serve this community!

  1. Meal volunteers are needed daily. Sign-up to help prep or serve/cleanup.
  2. Free Market volunteers are needed on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday.
  3. Special events are a fun way to serve the community and require a large number of volunteers.
    1. Thanksgiving
    2. Christmas
    3. Sweet Corn Day (late summer)
    4. Pass Along Party (just before Christmas)
  4. Groups please check the calendar to see what dates volunteers are needed. Please figure out 2-3 dates that work for your group and email patty@foodatfirst.com with the dates you are available, number of volunteers, and organization you are affiliated with (if applicable). Please include Volunteer Group on the subject line.
  5. Glean food from area grocery stores, ISU, restaurants, etc. on a recurring weekly basis. This opportunity is for volunteers interested in a long term commitment. For more information on gleaning, email Patty Yoder (patty@foodatfirst.com).
