Volunteer at EIF

The following volunteer opportunities are available:

Foodmobiles are mobile food distributions that target rural and under-served communities.  Volunteers are needed to set up the food distribution area, hand out product to recipients, help recipients carry product to their cars, and clean up after distribution is complete. This volunteer opportunity requires volunteers to lift, bend and stand during distribution preparation and throughout the distribution period.

We are in need of volunteers for the following upcoming Foodmobiles:

  • Saturday, September 25th in Danville - sign up here.

EIF Clean-Up
Help EIF clean up our exterior grounds! EIF will be hosting another clean-up on September 22nd from 4-7pm. For more information, and to sign up, click here.

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
