We welcome corporate and community groups as large as
90 people at our Main Facility and up to 20 at our Nome Facility.
In addition to fighting hunger, you’ll build team cohesion, boost morale, and increase motivation.
Schedule & Tasks
Volunteer shifts are offered at our Main Facility: Monday – Saturday 8:45 am until Noon and 12:15 pm until 3:30 pm and the third Saturday of each month from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm; and select days at our Nome Facility: from 12:15 pm until 3:30 pm.
Most of our volunteer opportunities take place in an active warehouse setting. Many (not all) of our opportunities require the ability to move freely, stand and walk for long periods of time, bend, reach, and lift up to 30 pounds. Please notify a Volunteer Coordinator if there are any limitations (physical or developmental) that we should be aware of, so we can best accommodate you. FBR’s needs change on a daily basis so we place volunteers in areas as needed to ensure we are effectively fulfilling our mission.
Main Facility – 10700 E. 45th Ave. Denver, CO 80239; Parking is located on the south side of the building
Nome Facility – 3900 Nome St. Unit T, Denver, CO 80239; Parking is located on the south side of the lot, along the fence.
Volunteers must be at least 14 years old (accompanied by an adult) or 16 years old to volunteer on their own. Volunteers must be 18 years old or older to volunteer in our kitchen. Prior authorization is required by the Volunteer Department for younger volunteers. We do not offer childcare at any of our sites.
Chaperone Policy: We ask that groups to follow the 1:5 ratio (adult to children) as best as possible to ensure the group has adequate adult supervision on hand and for your safety since our tasks do occur within a warehouse setting.
How to Get Started as a Volunteer Group
Step 1: As the group’s leader, select the available date and time that will accommodate your group size and press the “Sign Up” Button.
Step 2: If you have never registered with us (either as an individual volunteer or on behalf of a group), you will be prompted to complete a Volunteer Profile. If you are already a registered user, you will login to your existing account and select a date.
Step 3: Email our Volunteer Team at firstname.lastname@example.org with the:
- Group Name
- Selected Date
- Shift Time
- Number of people in your group
Step 4: Once you submit your group shift reservation, a member of our Volunteer Team will follow up via email, with a unique registration link for you to share with your group members. This registration link is unique to your group and cannot be accessed from our website or volunteer portal. Your group is NOT confirmed until you receive this link.
Step 5: Each volunteer in your group must register through your unique registration link so we know how many individuals to expect. This also allows us to accurately track our volunteers and their donated time.
