The Great Plains Food Bank needs volunteers every day to help sort, label, and repack donated and bulk foods, assemble boxes and bags for special programs, provide administrative support, and assist during special events. Our goal is to provide the best possible volunteer experience and prepare our volunteers to become outspoken hunger advocates in our community. When you donate your time to the Great Plains Food Bank, you become a partner in the fight against hunger in North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota.

We are now offering self-scheduling for our individual and family volunteers through our online Volunteer Information Center. The volunteer opportunities available through self-scheduling are mainly unskilled, bulk repack and food sorting openings. Group and skilled volunteers are unable to self-schedule at this time as these require additional preparation and screening prior to scheduling.

We have an immediate need for the following:
Development Clerical Volunteer (Wednesday Mornings |  September through January  |  Can be team of volunteers)
Bismarck Mandan Clerical Volunteer

Log in and register for your desired shift - it's easy!



Would you like to help end hunger, but have limited or sporadic availability?
Volunteer with us on an as-needed basis by plugging in when we have openings.

NOTE: All volunteers registering through this portal will be assigned as a Repack Volunteer.
