Individual Volunteers

Why volunteer to help end hunger?

When you volunteer at Good Shepherd Food Bank, you help us:

  • Distribute nearly 29 million pounds of food to people struggling with hunger in all of Maine’s 16 counties
  • Provide assistance to the 1 in 5 children and 1 in 7 Mainers facing food insecurity

Because hunger impacts:

  • A child’s ability to learn and focus in school
  • A family’s health; as those who are food insecure are more likely to be hospitalized or experience health crises
  • A person’s physical and emotional preparedness for the workforce
