Volunteer & Community Service


Make a hands-on difference!

Your time and dedication are important resources in the fight against hunger. The Food Bank relies on volunteers to help us with a variety of projects.  Volunteer as an individual or as a group!

Become A Volunteer

Community service volunteers must be able to lift 30-40 pounds and stand on their feet for 3 or more hours.  If you cannot do this, this may not be the volunteer opportunity for you. 


If you are interested in volunteering at the Food Bank we’d love to meet you!  We host orientation sessions at the Cave Creek location at 6038 E. Hidden Valley Drive, Cave Creek, AZ 85331 .

In order to attend one of the Orientations sessions, you must first fill out the Volunteer Sign Up form and send it to volunteer@foothillsfoodbank.com.  You can also mail this form to Foothills Food Bank, 6038 E. Hidden Valley Drive, Cave Creek, Arizona 85331.    If you have additional questions, you may call (480)488-1145 during regular business hours.

**NOTE:  Check our event calendar for any upcoming training sessions.

Community Service

Community service is for students who are required to accumulate hours for a school requirement or for individuals who have a court-ordered requirement.

Please also note that all students under 13 must be accompanied by an adult during their volunteer shifts. Both the student and his/her guardian must fill out volunteer applications at the Food Bank before they are eligible to work. You cannot be scheduled until both applications are received.

Community Service hours can be scheduled during regular business hours Monday through Friday or Saturday mornings from 8:00 am – 11:30 am.  All hours scheduled are based on the needs of the food bank and your schedule.

Each application includes the required volunteer liability waiver form. Please make sure to complete, sign and submit all forms.  All forms require a valid signature, so they can not be filled out online.

Please print, fill out, sign and turn in the forms through one of the methods below.

Successful organizations like Foothills Food Bank rely on you, amazing volunteers, to support our clients and our community. In addition to all the great work you do, think about the organizations, churches, businesses, schools and communities you are part of as potential for conducting food drives.

Food drives can be hosted any time during the year.  We have many resources to help your food drive be successful.  CONTACT us and let us know your organization would like to host a food drive.  Many thanks!
