Volunteer Driver

Sign up to be a volunteer driver

Food Connect volunteers make a big difference by helping support local shelters by dropping off food donations. We support the transport of surplus food from donor organizations to recipient organizations. A volunteer driver picks up surplus food from donors and safely delivers it to the appropriate recipients.  As a volunteer driver, you will be an important part of an exciting initiative that connects surplus food with those who need it the most!
