“We provide food for hungry people and we receive food for our souls.”
– FFGE Volunteer
We need your volunteer support! Thank you for your interest in joining Food For Greater Elgin.
Food For Greater Elgin’s volunteers have the meaningful opportunity to flexibly work during 5 food distribution shifts and 4 delivery shifts. Both types of shifts are approximately 3 hours in length.

  • A client-choice food distribution shift will involve assisting clients through the choice process and maintaining the warehouse as clients shop for their food.
  • A delivery shift involves unloading, sorting, and placement of food resources in our warehouse. Some light lifting is required.

Food For Greater Elgin serves as a volunteer destination for individuals and children age 12 and older. In addition, we welcome corporate, religious, civic, school, and other groups to volunteer with us.
