Without YOU, we can’t WIN the fight against hunger.


Volunteers like YOU make what we do possible. YOUR time, YOUR passion, YOUR drive – it inspires us to keep on going. Join the ranks and together, we’ll continue to fight hunger.



JOIN THE FIGHT. Here’s how in 3 easy steps.


Step 1. Choose an Opportunity

We have opportunities to join us in our fight against hunger year-round in our warehouse and during our Special Events season. Take a look at our Volunteer Brochure (find above) to find a match.


Step 2. Complete an Application

A completed Volunteer Application (select appropriate application above) is needed to begin your placement in a volunteer opportunity. Please fill the application out and return it to the Volunteer Manager at, or by fax at 808.836.2272. You may also mail your application to 2611 Kilihau Street, Honolulu, HI 96819. Please attention to “Volunteer Manager.”


Step 3. Schedule an Interview & Orientation Tour

Please make an appointment by calling our Volunteer Coordinator at (808) 954-7869.  The Interview & Orientation Tour will take about 45 minutes and may include viewing a training video, and a “try-it-on” period where you actually work in the department to see if it fits.
