Volunteers are at the heart of everything we do at the Amherst Survival Center.
Join the team of 150+ people a week that help us towards our goal of getting more food to more people by volunteering at the Amherst Survival Center. Most people volunteer on site for one 3 hour shift each week for three months or more. Volunteer shifts take place both inside and outside of the building following COVID safety protocols. Onsite volunteers should be a minimum of 14 years old. All volunteers must show proof of COVID vaccine and booster.
