Volunteer Opportunities at Backpack Brigade

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Backpack Brigade

Every week, more than 120 volunteers donate hundreds of hours of service. They prep and pack our bags, organize our warehouse and deliver 3,300 bags to 84 schools every week.

VOLUNTEER NEED LEVEL: HIGH

Packing & Prepping

MONDAY - THURSDAY 8:00 - 11:00 AM

Highest need: Monday, Wednesday

Each day, up to 20 volunteers prepare our tables, pulling food items off the shelf and onto movable racks. Packers take those racks, roll them to a table, and pack 70 bags at a time. Prep, pack, deliver repeat until all kids are fed every weekend.

Delivery Drivers

THURSDAYS MORNING 8:30 to 12:00. TWO HOURS MAX. TIMES ARE FLEXIBLE(ISH).

Every Thursday, nearly 50 volunteers arrive in their own cars, seats down and covered, to take our bags to one, two or three of the 84 schools we serve. Our loaders handle all the lifting. You'll open the trunk, get a clipboard with your route and head out.

Every driver starts and ends their route at our warehouse.
