Food Bank Every other 3rd Tuesday Next TBD

The Food Bank consistently monitors changes regarding local and national guidance concerning COVID-19 and is dedicated to keeping volunteers, staff and the community safe. As part of this, The Food Bank is updating our current policies and procedures. We wanted to share these updates with you. Starting on June 1, 2021, we will increase our capacity to 50%, and all volunteers will need to adhere to the following policies:


  • Vaccinated Individuals: it is optional for volunteers, staff and visitors to wear a mask at all our locations.
  • Unvaccinated Individuals: it is strongly encouraged to wear a mask while inside our buildings.
  • Anyone who would like to wear a mask for health or other reasons is welcome to do so.

Volunteers Needed as Food Bank Switches to Summer Hours

Every summer, The Food Bank sees a decrease in volunteers. This year, we need people to help break that trend so we can continue our operation without issues. To make that possible, the Volunteer Room will be adjusting our hours to be open on Mondays and serve earlier on Saturdays. And Central Pantry is introducing a new volunteer shift!

Central Pantry will now host a Hunger Hero shift! These shifts offer more flexibility and provide you with a chance to work on special projects that we usually do not have time for on a normal shift. Volunteers who sign up for a hunger hero shift will need to indicate the time they plan to come in. We ask that you serve for a minimum of one hour during this shift.

Serve at Central Pantry during June (1007 Big Bear Blvd.)

Volunteers will help check in shoppers, sort through food donations, pack food boxes, and help clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces. Volunteers at the Central Pantry will interact with shoppers.

Tuesday-Friday (10 volunteers per shift): 9:30-11:30 a.m.; 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.; 2-4 p.m.; and Hunger Hero shift (1-hour minimum from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.)
