Worth the Wait


Volunteers at Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida are amazing! As soon as the schedule is released for upcoming volunteer opportunities, you respond and we are so grateful for your support. Due to the high-demand for Saturdays and other popular activities, Second Harvest has started a waiting list for volunteers to allow more people to express their interest in helping.

How does the waitlist work?

If an opportunity on the calendar shows a JOIN WAITLIST button and you would like to join the waiting list, please click on it and sign up to get on the list. The waitlist works on a first come first served basis. The first volunteer who joins the waitlist will be registered for the event automatically if someone cancels. A confirmation email will be sent automatically with a cancellation link for the event if you are no longer available that day. The process will continue seamlessly until the vacancy is filled.


The waitlist process will start with dates and opportunities in April. Please be patient with the volunteer staff while this new feature is rolled out.

Volunteers make a huge impact in the fight against hunger, and we wouldn’t be able to feed as many people without you!  If you would like to sign up for a volunteer shift, all you need to do is sign up at www.feedhopenow.org/volunteer.
