Group Volunteer Opportunities

We need people like you

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Second Harvest. We couldn’t do what we do without the generous support of people like you. Volunteering as a group can be a great team builder, or a fun way for friends to do something meaningful together. The following opportunities are for groups of five or more.

Check out our group calendar for dates and times that work for your group to sort food in our warehouses or distribute food in the community.

Sort food in our warehouse

Help us sort and box the fresh produce and healthy groceries we provide to the community. Group shifts are available at our Cypress Center in San Jose and our Bing Center in San Carlos.

Sort food

Distribute food to the community

Help your neighbors get the nutritious food they need. Volunteer with your group of five to 20 at one of our community distribution sites in Silicon Valley.

Distribute food

Host a virtual or traditional food drive

Virtual and traditional food drives are a great way for your group to support the cause. Create a customized fundraising page for your group, or collect food and funds as a team, and maximize your impact.

Organize a drive

Join us for the Turkey Trot

Spend Thanksgiving morning volunteering with colleagues, friends or family at the annual Turkey Trot. This festive event supports Second Harvest. Registration will open in the fall of 2020!
