I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.

Everyone can make a difference!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Hope.  We distribute groceries to families every Thursday, Friday, and first Saturday of the month. Saturday distribution is reserved for our partners. 

General Volunteer Schedule.

Tuesdays 1:30 – 4p.m. Prepping and stocking involves sorting dry goods and fresh produce in preparation for Thursday/Friday/Saturday distribution.

Thursday and Friday 8 – 11a.m.  Volunteers come in to set up, help distribute groceries, and break down for the next distribution time. These days of service involve limited interaction with family members picking up groceries.

Other needs:

  • Food Pick/Delivery using your own vehicle, times vary
  • Volunteer Team Leads to coordinate different aspects of the process

Thanks to a steady and ardent group of community volunteers we only reserve groups of 10-12 volunteers if they donate $500 or provide a food drive of the same value (think 500 cans of non-perishables). If you have a group size of 10 – 12 and are interested in scheduling a service day for your group please contact Betsy at Coordinator@HopeFoodPantryAustin.org.

For larger groups, please contact the Central Texas Food Bank. Email: volunteer@centraltexasfoodbank.org.  Ana Hernandez is the volunteer engagement assistant who books groups.  ahernandez@centraltexasfoodbank.org or (512) 684-2546.
