Volunteer

Volunteer with FRESHFARM at one of our farmers markets, with FoodPrints, or with the Pop-Up Food Hub.

Volunteer at the Market

Volunteers play a number of roles at markets including helping with our market operations, assisting with support for our food access and education efforts, and adding to the markets’ spirit of community.

The majority of market volunteer opportunities require a regular commitment of serving at least every other week for the duration of a market season. Find the market schedule here.

If you are interested in volunteering, please send us your information here and we will reach out to you to match you with our volunteer needs.

A reminder that volunteering at markets involves working outdoors in the elements, some heavy lifting, friendly customer service, and representing FRESHFARM to the community. Comfortable clothes recommended. We require volunteers to be 16 years of age or older.

Volunteer with FoodPrints

FoodPrints’ hands-on cooking, gardening, and environmental literacy lessons generally need helpers during the school day. Ideal volunteers can commit to coming every week for 2-3-hour blocks. (When in-person instruction resumes we will also need volunteers at some FoodPrints schools to support an on-site, after school farmstand, garden maintenance, and/or cafeteria waste sorting during breakfast, lunch, and aftercare meals to help students sort their waste into compost, recycling, and trash.)

Volunteer with the Pop-Up Food Hub

The Pop-Up Food Hub welcomes volunteers who are eager to give their support to make sustainable food more readily available in our community. Our volunteers help pack fresh, local produce that will eventually make its way to individuals and organizations across the city. Learn more about the Pop-Up Food Hub model here, and the Market Share here.

Volunteer opportunities with the Pop Up Food Hub have closed for the 2020 season. Please check back in Spring 2021 for opportunities next season!
