Volunteering - Houston Food Bank

YOU ARE REQUIRED TO REGISTER WITH THE HOUSTON FOOD BANK AT THE FOLLOWING BUTTON IF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER. 

Address:

535 Portwall St.; Houston, TX 77029

Please plan to arrive at least fifteen minutes before your scheduled volunteer shift so you can check in, receive instructions and start on time:  We will begin all projects promptly at scheduled shift times.   If you arrive after the first shift has started, you may have to wait up to 30 minutes for another assignment.  If members of your group arrive late, we cannot guarantee they will be able to join you in your assigned area.

Where to park:  If space permits it, you may park in the front parking lot, but in the event of a large volunteer turnout, you may be directed to our overflow lot located behind the building.

For your safety, personal belongings are not allowed in project areas:  Due to limited locker space, we ask that you lock your purse, jackets, backpacks and any other valuables in your vehicle before checking-in.

Dress Code: Closed-toe shoes (NO sandals or flip flops), long pants (Mandatory: NO shorts), t-shirt or shirt with sleeves, absolutely NO jewelry. 

Media Reminders:  If you are planning to take any video footage, wish to have a Food Bank spokesperson available for interviews or want to share your volunteer experience with the media, please obtain the approval of the director of Communications, Adele Brady, at 713-547-8674 at least 2 weeks prior to your volunteer session.

If you have questions, please contact the Houston Food Bank's volunteer team at 713-547-8604 or volunteernow@houstonfoodbank.org. We look forward to seeing you and thanks for helping feed hungry neighbours across 18 counties!
