Frequently Asked Question


How old do I have to be to volunteer?

Community youth are an extremely important part of Parkland Food Bank. Unfortunately children under the age of 16 are not able to volunteer on location at Parkland Food Bank, but we have provided a toolkit to inspire ways to help us out in the community!


How long are most volunteer shifts?

Most of our shifts are approximately 4 hours.


How long of a commitment do I have to make?

Our program asks a six month commitment. We do have some “summer only” positions available for students over the age of 16.


How long does the application process take?

The intake process can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 1 month, depending on the job assignment and current openings.
