Volunteer Opportunities

Individual Volunteer Instructions:
Thank you for your interest in volunteering as an individual at Harvest Hope Food Bank!   You must first watch the required ten minute orientation video.  The video contains important safety and food safety information you will need to know in order to volunteer at Harvest Hope.   An application and waiver must be completed and signed for each volunteer, and if the volunteer is younger than 18 years of age, must be signed by the parent or legal guardian.    Once you watch the video, and complete the volunteer application and waiver, you will be able to see the volunteer opportunities available.

We look forward to working with you.  If you have further questions after you have watched the volunteer orientation video and completed the application and waiver,  please contact one of our volunteer coordinators at the appropriate branch. 
For information regarding our Columbia locations, please contact Kara Pippin at khernandez@harvesthope.org or Elizabeth Williams at ewilliams@harvesthope.org.  For information regarding our Greenville location, please contact Tanya Yachaina at tyachaina@harvesthope.org.

Group Volunteer Instructions:
If you are a group leader please contact the appropriate coordinator in your geographical area.  The coordinator will set up a campaign page for your group and email the link to you, which you can share with your group.  All group members or parents/guardians of volunteers younger than 18 will need to watch the volunteer orientation video and complete the application and waiver before they volunteer.
