Volunteers must sign up ahead of time so that the Food Bank can keep the numbers to a safe level. Volunteers who are interested in this opportunity can sign up on the Food Bank of Northern Nevada website by clicking here: Volunteer opportunities. If they have not volunteered before at the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, they can complete a volunteer application by clicking here: Volunteer Application.
