Volunteer Opportunities

As the Alliance, we have the chance to meet and interact with so many impactful food organizations in our community. If you are interested in getting a better understanding of the food work in San Diego and available to offer some support, below are a few volunteer opportunities with our partners. Activities are available for individuals, groups and corporate outings. Please note that many opportunities require reservations and coordination in advance.
