NOTICE: Various street closures will occur on Lansing between Pine and Oklahoma for 3-4 weeks beginning 10/20/2014. Traffic will be detoured to Norfolk Avenue (just east of Lansing) during construction. Click here for a map detailing the closures and detour.

Volunteers save us hundreds of thousands of dollars that we can direct toward our mission. We love seeing new faces at the Food Bank and have a variety of opportunities for groups, families and individuals.

Last year, our volunteers provided more 48,500 service hours at the Food Bank – that’s the equivalent of hiring 23 full-time employees! Our opportunities range from sorting and repackaging donated food for our Partner Programs, preparing more than 5,500 sacks of food for our Food for Kids Backpack Program, helping at special Food Bank events, administrative opportunities and more.

Interested in helping? Please contact volunteer@okfoodbank.org or 918-936-4545 to schedule a time in advance. Our opportunities cater to a range of ages and abilities. Contact Adam Baker for more information and eligibility.

We currently have an urgent need for volunteers on Saturday, July 12th! Click here to view opportunity descriptions and to get involved.
