Volunteer At CFA

CFA Volunteers Make Our Work Possible

Volunteers play a key role in CFA’s mission to end hunger and homelessness in our neighborhoods. Every year hundreds of CFA volunteers donate their time and energy to improving the lives of local individuals and families who are in need. Here are the many ways you can bring your generosity of spirit, talents and work skills to bear on CFA’s work and mission:

Organize a Food Drive

CFA relies upon the community to host food drives that will provide the needed groceries to fill our emergency food packages. This job is vital to our ability to provide food to those in need.

Personal Fundraising

A Gathering With A Purpose:  Learn more about how to host an event to raise awareness about hunger and homelessness and raise funds to help.

Special Events

Looking for a one-time volunteer opportunity? Cheer on runners and walkers at our 5K or help check-in event participants at a snack packing event.

Administrative Support

Pantry & Warehouse Work

Volunteers are needed to sort donated food, stock our pantries and warehouse shelves, and prepare the emergency food packages that are given to our clients.
