Opportunity Details

Sort and Repack

Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank continuously receives food donations from generous donors that help keep to our shelves stocked for those in need. All of our donated food needs to be thoroughly checked before it can be processed through to our agencies.
Help us sort and categorize all of the non-perishable food items to immediately help those who are hungry! This volunteer activity involves checking dates on food, moderate lifting and walking in our warehouse. It is a fun and lively environment and great exercise too!



​We require all Sort and Repack volunteers to be able to lift 40 pounds, stand for extended periods of time, and independently follow directions without assistance.
If you require special accommodations for yourself and/or your group or do not meet our requirements, please contact the volunteer coordinator at [email protected] or (225)359-9940.


If you will be more than 30 minutes late for your shift, please reschedule for a shift that you can fully attend. Volunteers are expected to sign up for shifts, arrive on time and stay for the entirety of the shift in order to maintain the warehouse workflow.  

The comfort and safety of our volunteers is important. Due to health codes and safety reasons, a volunteer MUST wear closed-toed shoes (sneakers suggested). Please wear loose comfortable clothing (our warehouse is not climate-controlled, therefore, be mindful of the weather conditions).

Please leave valuable, purses or backpacks in the trunk of your car or bring them inside for safety.​
