Volunteering at Good Shepherd Food Bank is one of the best ways to give back to your neighbors struggling with food insecurity, especially during the current pandemic. By donating a few hours of your time, you’ll provide meals to families, children, seniors, and those in need across Maine.
Whether volunteering as an individual or in a small group, you’ll soon notice that being aware of and adhering to COVID-19 guidelines is part of your volunteer responsibility. As we’ve done throughout the pandemic, we are relying on data, guidance, and information from the CDC to inform this and all COVID-19 related decisions. To learn more about the guidance and data that inform these decisions, you can follow this link: Home | Covid-19 (maine.gov).

We are offering group opportunities again (maximum of 7 in Hampden and 8 in Auburn). Whether you are looking for service hours or a fun way to spend time with friends and give back to the community, individual and group volunteering is a great way to help our mission of ending hunger in Maine.
Community members who have been court-referred to volunteer may complete their required hours at the Food Bank. Register on our volunteer database, gsfb.galaxydigital.com, and our volunteer engagement team will review your request.
What should I wear?
Please dress in comfortable clothing, such as jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers. All volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes.
