River Bend Food Bank needs your time and talent. Both are vital to our mission of ensuring that no one in our service area goes hungry. We cannot do this without you!
For the health and safety of all our volunteers, guests, agency partners, and staff, in-person volunteer opportunities are limited. Please contact Shalynn Eldredge-McMillan with questions. Registration changes can be done easily through your volunteer profile.
Important Volunteer Information:
Please register in advance so we can plan for your help. If you need to change or cancel your volunteer slot, let us know – we rely on knowing who will be on-hand to make sure enough food goes where people are in need.
New, Expanded Hours at NorthPark and SouthPark Mall Pantries!
We are welcoming guests back inside to select their own food at our two mall food pantry sites. Each site’s hours are also expanded, meaning we need more volunteers to help! Select available slots from the registration form below.
River Bend Food Bank relies on the generosity of its supporters to help fight hunger in eastern lowa and western Illinois. Each year, over 22 million meals are missed in our service area. Your financial support is essential to bridging the meal gap in our community.
Volunteers are crucial to the operation of River Bend Food Bank. Without volunteers, it would not be possible to collect, sort, and distribute all the food that comes through our warehouse every day. Together we're feeding people today and ending hunger tomorrow.
If you or a loved one is experiencing hunger, please let us help you. Find a food pantry or meal site near you with our interactive map.
