Volunteer With Us

We are an all-volunteer organization and we always need new volunteers! During Covid-19, the need is particularly pronounced, as many of our regular volunteers have had to step down. Just show up to any of the kitchens below. In addition to helping prepare and serve food, there are a number of other opportunities to help out with EBFNB. We especially need licensed drivers to help with regular donation pick-ups from farmers’ markets and supermarkets. Please contact Ryan or Kalie if you are interested in volunteering on a regular basis as a driver.

We post day to day volunteer needs and urgent asks on our Instagram.

Monday through Friday, if you’d just like to help serve and not cook, show up at People’s Park at 3pm.
