These volunteer opportunities are available at both our New Orleans and Lafayette facilities. Volunteers help us inspect, sort, and repack food and grocery products. Some volunteers load food product onto conveyor belts, some inspect and sort products into itemized categories, and others repack food items into Second Harvest boxes. Volunteers must be at least 9 years old, chaperones for youth & youth groups are required. Individual youth volunteers between the ages of 9 and 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Individual youth volunteers age 13 or older are welcome to volunteer independently, with parental/guardian permission.
