Ways to Help

Volunteer Engagement Center

Volunteers help inspect, sort and repackage food in the Duquesne, PA warehouse. With the help of volunteers, thousands of food boxes are constructed daily that will be directly distributed to community members.



Volunteers at Distributions get hands-on experience distributing food and interacting with the community. Participants help load cars full of nutritious foods for hundreds of families and individuals at this outdoor event.


Doorstep Delivery

This contactless volunteer opportunity has volunteers use their personal vehicles to deliver boxes of food directly to the doorstep of community members in need.


Food Bank Farm & Gleaning

Help prepare, maintain and harvest organic produce at the Food Bank Farm. Volunteers can also join Food Bank staff in rescuing fresh food from farms through our gleaning program.


Clerical Support & Skilled Volunteers

Help the Food Bank by utilizing your skillset and interests. Volunteers will be connected to a Food Bank Department and work directly with staff to complete projects in the office.


Farmers Markets

Volunteers interact with vendors at the end of farmers’ markets and collect donations from farmers, which then they deliver to the local agency they have been matched with.


Family Volunteer Day

This volunteer event gets the whole family involved and helps to educate our younger volunteers on food insecurity in their community. Due to COIVD-19, Family Volunteer Day has been suspended till further notice.


The Market

The Market, in partnership with Giant Eagle, offers a grocery store-style experience providing shelf-stable, meat, dairy, fresh produce and non-food grocery items as well as connections to additional resources for help.
