Together we can feed hungry Alaskans

When you volunteer at Food Bank of Alaska, your impact goes well beyond the immediate project. We are truly honored and humbled to work with so many wonderful and generous people committed to a hunger-free Alaska. Volunteers make a difference for every program and department. We could not accomplish all that we do without the hours and talents provided by so many of you who care.

*Please note that due to liability reasons we are unable to have children under the age of 10 volunteering in our warehouse.
