Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin. Throughout the year, we need volunteer groups to help with special projects.

Race2Party 5K

We are looking for volunteers to help with the Race2Party 5K on Saturday, May 30 at the Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, Wisconsin. Volunteers will be needed for tasks such as registration, water stations, runner services and event wrap-up from 4 to 7 p.m.  

The race will take place on the dragaway. GLD will be conducting their bracket racing events that evening, so the 5K run/walk will take place on the track during a break in the drag racing action. The race starts at 6 p.m. The band “Left on Sunset” will be rocking the stage after the 5K. A portion of the proceeds and food donated at the event will benefit Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Pahoua Xiong, at pxiong@feedingamericawi.org or 414-831-6326 if you are interested in volunteering.

Tuesday Volunteer Opportunities

We are now offering a new weekday opportunity for individuals. We are recruiting individual volunteers to help us sort and label food for those who are hungry in our communities every Tuesday morning from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

We are looking forward to building a group of regular Tuesday morning volunteers to help us prepare food for distribution to our community partners serving the hungry. Volunteers must be able to stand and lift up to 15 pounds. The volunteer events take place at our warehouse at 1700 W. Fond du Lac Avenue.

We’d like to register volunteers in advance of the event so we can prepare the work and supplies needed for the group. If interested, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Pahoua Xiong, at pxiong@feedingamericawi.org or 414-831-6326.
