Volunteers contribute more than 250 hours per week to support our mission. We invite you to become a member of Team H.O.P.E. – Helping Other People Eat.
Volunteers are vital to the success of the Haymarket Regional Food Pantry’s efforts to help people in our community who need food assistance. We are grateful for the many individuals, families, and corporate and community groups who share their time and talents by volunteering at the food pantry in a variety of capacities.
Although we are temporarily closed, we are still building our team so we have volunteers ready to go when we reopen. Please complete our volunteer form and you will be notified once opportunities open up.
Let’s Get Started

Step 2: Review Our FAQs
Our Volunteer Frequently Asked Questions page addresses many of the questions that we receive from new volunteers. Review this handy list for more information about our programs.
Step 3: Are You Ready to Volunteer?
If you have an interest in volunteering on a regular basis at the Haymarket Regional Food Pantry, please do the following:

Also, space in our training sessions is limited and available only to those who have completed and submitted a volunteer application. Please confirm your spot, and date and time of the training session with our Volunteer Coordinator.
We truly treasure all of our volunteers for sharing their gifts of time. One look at our 2017 Volunteer Hours Infographic will assure you that your time will be well spent.
