Interested in volunteering once a month to deliver food, friendship, and hope?

Applications are available online or in Microsoft Word document format by clicking the following links:

Completed Word format applications or further questions may be emailed to foodassistance@hotmail.com

Who can volunteer? - Organizations, businesses, clubs, groups, families, singles, or couples can volunteer. You can even take your pet (if they are well behaved.) Once a month during the distribution, normally the third week of the month, you pickup food from the warehouse and deliver it to your assigned participant(s).

Groups and Individuals can volunteer for warehouse workdays - to bag food, clean and organize the warehouse.

Volunteers - what you need to know!

  1. Fill out the volunteer application form - this lets us know what areas you are interested in volunteering for.
  2. Once we receive the application, if making route delivery, you will be assigned four+ participants (in close proximity).
  3. You will receive a schedule for the year with all food pickup dates on it (also available on the website).
  4. Look up your route using www.mapquest.com from your computer. The warehouse can be used as your starting point (3720-A Alliance Drive, Greensboro, NC 27407), and your participant's address the destination.
  5. Call your participants and introduce yourself as being with Food Assistance "Groceries on Wheels" program. Let them know when you will make your delivery (date and time). Call them the morning of delivery just to remind them you are on your way.
  6. We send you a reminder at the beginning of each month with delivery dates for food pickup.
  7. We ask that you please spend a little time with your participant(s). They really enjoy the company each month and look forward to your visit.
