Sign up to serve your neighbors in need.

Every day, 40 million people in this country struggle with access to enough good food to live a healthy lifestyle. And at the same time, 40% of all the food grown on U.S. farms ends up lost as waste for a variety of reasons.

By volunteering with SoSA, you can serve in the twofold mission to prevent food waste and end hunger. Every 1lb. of food rescued provides 4 servings of fresh food for a family who needs it most.

Each year, in the mission to end hunger, thousands of individuals and groups selflessly give their time and talents to rescue food and share it with families in need. It simply wouldn’t be possible without you and so many SoSA volunteers. 

SoSA welcomes volunteers of all abilities.
Whether you’re interested in unique ways to serve your neighbors or have some physical limitations that prevent you from safely harvesting food in farm fields, there’s a spot for you on the SoSA volunteer team!

That story is what you will feel, learn, & accomplish while volunteering. 

Are you interested in preserving the environment and impacting climate change? Wonderful! Serve with SoSA. Or maybe you’re interested in seeing all families have equal access to farm-fresh food? Also, great! Serve with SoSA.
