Free The Need is an all-volunteer organization, and we are always glad to hear from anyone wishing to volunteer their surplus time or services. For more information please e-mail or call us. 

  • We rely on our volunteers to help sort and pack donated food for distribution - it's a great way to meet others and do good in your community together. Individuals, friends and families can come be a part of Food Day, the cornerstone of our programs. 

  • It's easy and fun to get others involved by starting a Food and Fund Drive. We'll help you create your own donation page and raise funds through our web site.

  • Businesses, clubs or associations wishing to create a special group volunteer event or a Food and Fund Drive are also welcome to get in touch with us. 

    "Myself, children, and friends - the lifters, movers, and sorters among all that abundant generosity. A dance that finishes with the boxes full of nourishment. Real food that will inspire the cook, that will lighten the load of the breadwinner, and grow little bodies with vitamins straight from fresh and wholesome real food like blueberries and red peppers, corn, potatoes and salad."                
~Amina, Food Day volunteer
