Policy on Youth Volunteers

Volunteers must be at least 12 years old.

  • Volunteers who are 12 to 15 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian the entire volunteer shift.
  • Volunteers who are 16-17 years old must have a letter from a parent/guardian giving them permission to volunteer without supervision of adults.

The Alameda Food Bank welcomes youth volunteers at our First Saturday/CFS program the first Saturday of each month, 9 AM to 1 PM at our warehouse at 650 West Ranger Ave in Alameda. Please note that this is not a drop-in volunteer opportunity and is by appointment only. If interested, you must email or call (510-523-5850) the Alameda Food Bank to reserve a spot.
