“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
As a community-based nonprofit, Target Hunger depends upon the support and input of the community for our success. A vital aspect of that support is volunteerism. Each year, Target Hunger welcomes hundreds of volunteers who donate their time and services to help individuals and families in Houston who are in the greatest need. Join one of our volunteer teams as an individual volunteer or as part of a volunteer group and make a difference in the lives of Houston families.

Please help us continue providing the necessary food for our fellow Houstonian's.
Food Pantry Team
Food pantry team members help with the most fundamental part of our mission – getting food to the people who need it most. Duties may include preparation and pantry set-up, sorting and repacking food, and helping clients shop.
Before our clients can receive food, it must be sorted and delivered. The Distribution Center is where this all happens. Distribution team members help with the logistics of getting packed food to the pantries in our serving area and making sure they are ready for their clients.
Educational Food Fair Team
Volunteer as a member of a team that helps Houstonians learn about nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Our Educational Food Fairs are open to anyone in Houston and provide participants with a mini-workshop about healthy living as well as fresh produce. Your help is needed in repackaging produce and assisting with our clients intake process.
Senior Route Delivery Team
Please help a senior with limited mobility have access to food this month. This dedicated team of volunteers delivers food and provides a much appreciated check-up on our elderly clients. A six month route commitment is required.
Community Gardens Team
Enjoy working outdoors? Want to share your passion for gardening with others? We welcome both novice and experienced gardeners to be part of our volunteer team. The members work together to grow nutritious produce for the community and support Target Hunger’s food pantries by offsetting the price of fresh produce. It’s a win-win for everyone!
Special Events Team
Special events team members provide staff support for special events and may be involved with guest registration, greeting and ushering guests, or participating in special hunger relief activities. This is a great way to be involved on a grand scale and help promote Target Hunger in the community.
