Share Your Skills with Our Advocacy Team

Hunger is a solve-able problem -- here are three exciting ways to use your skills and passion to help us end hunger in our community.

Though many of our volunteers work in the warehouse, we have many meaningful volunteer opportunities outside our walls, too!

These projects are perfect for people who have special skills or want to learn more about our work. Please consider sharing your time, skills and passion, and spreading the word!

For more information on any of these opportunities, contact our Advocacy Associate Cat Burton at eburton@accfb.org or (510) 635-3663 ext. 307.

Hunger Study Client Surveys
We are one of hundreds of food banks surveying their clients, but one of just a few who create an in-depth report of the results and policy priorities. The report will be a tool for policymakers and will inform our daily work.

Volunteers who are available to give one half day per week will visit food distribution sites to conduct client surveys as part of our Hunger Study 2014 data collection. Willingness to travel throughout the county is preferred. We especially need bilingual volunteers in Spanish and Chinese dialects. (April – August)

Summer Lunch Library Volunteers
When school is out, families may struggle to provide lunches their children normally get in school. You can help us bridge that gap.

For two hours midday, at least three times over the summer, volunteers are needed to help distribute Free Summer Lunch to children at Oakland Public Library branches. (June – August)

Hunger Action Day 2013
Join hundreds of other advocates in Sacramento to educate our lawmakers on hunger. Transportation and lunch are provided. (May 22)
