We currently have two immediate ongoing volunteer opportunities at our East Haven location at 150 Bradley Street.  If you are interested in any of the following volunteer positions, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Kim Damien at 203-469-5000, ext. 311 or email, kdamien@ctfoodbank.org.

Warehouse Help

Connecticut Food Bank needs one volunteer each day, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to Noon; and 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at our East Haven warehouse to assist with sorting food donations. This is an ongoing opportunity and not a one visit situation. The days can be covered by the same volunteer each day or by a different volunteer each day.  

BackPack Delivery Assistant

BackPack Delivery Assistant needed to assist with delivery of boxes of food to various schools each Thursday morning during the school year. The volunteer will ride with a staff member to participating schools and help unload the boxes and carry them inside. The right volunteer will be able to lift and carry 35-40 pounds while climbing stairs and will be available each week. Staff and volunteer will depart from the East Haven warehouse at 7:30 a.m. and return to the East Haven warehouse around noon.
