Sort food in our warehouse
Help us prepare food for distribution by sorting, labeling and repacking food items at our Cypress Center in San Jose or Bing Center in San Carlos. Training is provided at the beginning of each shift.
Choose a shift appropriate for you. The two-hour shifts during the workday are ideal for corporate groups. Community sorts for individual volunteers and those who have court-ordered or school hours are the 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. shifts during the week.
Everyone must register in advance, even if you are part of a group. You are not officially registered for a sort until you receive a confirmation email from Second Harvest. Court-ordered volunteers must be pre-approved before signing up for a sort.
