Proud Partner of:


Our dedicated and caring volunteers are at the heart of everything we do.

Without volunteers, the Merced County Food Bank would not be able to provide food for thousands of hungry people every week. Get together with a social, church or work group and spend a day with us.

To learn more about becoming a Food Bank volunteer, contact our volunteer coordinator Ived Ayala  at (916) 531-3979 or 

All volunteers are asked to complete a liability release prior to participating in programs at the Food Bank. Minors must have the release signed by a parent or legal guardian. 

  • Minimum age for volunteering is 14 years old.
  • Volunteers must wear closed toe shoes. (No sandals or open toe shoes allowed in the warehouse.)


  • Food Sorting

    When product is donated to the Food Bank, it often needs to be sorted, cleaned and repackaged. Volunteers are needed to assist with these processes every day. Our facility is available Monday through Friday 7:30am to 3:30pm to individuals, groups or organizations of 25 volunteers or less to support this need.

  • Special Events and Food Drives

    Merced County Food Bank is constantly involved with Food Drives and Special Events. Volunteers perform a wide range of duties, depending on the event.

    Contact Ived Ayala  at (916) 531-3979 or​​​​​​​ to schedule your day.


MCFB is located at 2000 West Olive Avenue, Mecred, CA 95348.
