Volunteers make it possible for Ozarks Food Harvest to feed more than 50,000 individuals each month. Become a Hunger Hero by donating your time! Whether you volunteer monthly, or commit to a weekly schedule, your gift of time will Transform Hunger into Hope for children, families and seniors in need in the Ozarks.
In a typical three-hour Sort & Pack session at the O’Reilly Center for Hunger Relief in Springfield, you will help provide more than 300 meals. Complete the easy volunteer application on our volunteer management system to become part of The Food Bank’s volunteer community, or if you’re a returning Hunger Hero, simply schedule your upcoming session. We ask that volunteers schedule in advance, arrive on time, and wear closed-toe shoes. For assistance, contact our volunteer engagement team at (417) 865-3411 OR CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE.

Court-Ordered Community Service Policy: Applicants must be approved before registering for volunteer sessions. Please designate this, along with the requested details, on your application.
