“We rise by lifting others.”

-Robert Ingersoll

We are currently looking for volunteers to work one or more days a week.

Volunteer roles include checking in clients, managing the flow of clients, handing out food, preparing food for distribution, sorting donations and assisting with clean up at closing time. Volunteers may also participate in our food recovery efforts as a driver/loader at donor stores.

Volunteer hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 1 pm.

Anyone who is interested in giving back to the community is encouraged to contact us through the website, talk to the Director during business hours, or email us at slzfoodbank@gmail.com.

Thank You For Your Service

Message from the President

We are very happy to welcome you to the San Lorenzo Family Help Center (SLFHC). Your work as a volunteer will help us in San Lorenzo and Alameda County to fulfill our mission to provide food to the low-income residents on a non-discriminatory basis.

The SLFHC is a private, non-affiliated, non-profit, tax-exempt agency overseen by a board of directors composed of community volunteers.

The SLFHC couldn’t possibly provide the needed services without the hard work of over 100 dedicated volunteers. You will join a wonderful group of people whose ongoing goal is to defeat hunger in our designated area. Welcome to San Lorenzo Family Help Center!
