COVID UPDATE
The Oregon Food Bank is doing everything we can to respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic and ensure our food assistance system remains strong. We are committed first and foremost to the health and safety of our community - to our clients, volunteers, and partners.
        
Please go online, cancel your shift, and consider other ways to contribute during this crisis, if you or someone in your household:
- Has a cough, fever 99.5 or higher, or any type of respiratory illness (seek medical advice).
- Has headaches, tiredness, body aches, chills, sore throat, sneezing, stuffy or runny nose, difficulty breathing, loss of taste/smell, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea.
- Has been in close contact with or caring for someone who is suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19.
- If you're a returning resident or you've traveled to Oregon from outside the state, see Oregon Health Authority requirements.
 
 
Important Things to Know
Are shifts full or not showing up on the calendar? If 'Total Spots' say 0, the shift is full. Please keep checking back as things change rapidly. We are able to open up Food Repack/Sort Shifts 1 week at a time, and Offsite Volunteer Opportunities, 1 month out. Food Repack/Sort shifts for the next week will be posted Friday afternoons.
The minimum age to participate in Food Repack/Sort shifts is 12+. Garden shifts are all ages. Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult (18+) chaperone.
Click on a specific shift for detailed information that includes shift descriptions. Same-day sign-up is not available due to planning purposes.
Eligibility to receive the Covid-19 vaccine has expanded. Everyone 12+ is eligible for a vaccine. Please refer to the Oregon Health Authority for more information. We encourage and support this massive vaccination effort so we can all #EmergeStronger!
To account for social distancing every volunteer must register ahead of time. Each shift has a limited number of spots. Walk-ins may be turned away.
 
Mask Mandates
Food Repack/Sort Shifts: Masks/face coverings continue to be required for volunteers at all times inside Oregon Food Bank facilities in Portland and Beaverton until further notice. We continue to center the health and safety of our clients, volunteers, and staff in all we do.
Offsite Shifts: Please continue to bring and be prepared to wear a mask/face covering to offsite volunteer shifts at Partner Agencies, and Free Food Markets.
Garden Shifts: Please wear a mask upon arrival for orientation and when accessing indoor spaces. Masks are optional in the garden working on projects.
 
Organizing a Group
Repack Shifts: We are not currently accepting group sign-ups at this time for food repack shifts. If you are working to organize a group or family activity for a repack shift we ask that every member of your group sign up as an individual.
Community Food Distribution and Free Food Market volunteer shifts are available for groups of at least 5 people. Use the Availability filter in the Calendar Filter below to locate an offsite opportunity for small groups.
