Volunteer at EIF

The following volunteer opportunities are available:

Foodmobiles are EIF's mobile food pantry program designed to bring nutritious food to rural or under-served communities. Volunteers are needed to help set up, assist with distribution (including helping clients carry food to their vehicles) and clean up. The following Foodmobile volunteer opportunities are available:

Link2Feed - Data Entry
We need volunteers to help with data entry. EIF uses Link2Feed, a program that helps us collect data about those who benefit from our services in order to have accurate data detailing who is impacted by food insecurity, Having this information leads to informed decisions on how to best serve those facing food insecurity. 

  • Volunteers must be able to stand and walk
  • You must have reliable transportation to get to Foodmobile sites
  • You must have basic computing skills; experience with data entry is preferred

Seasonal Administrative Help
The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year for Eastern Illinois Foodbank, and we're in need of some dedicated volunteers to help us stuff donation letters. This opportunity will last through the end of the year and will require the volunteer to work from our office. If you would like to learn more, please contact Merry Mitchell at mmitchell (at) eifoodbank.org
