Experience FoodShare: Volunteering, tours, team building, speaking engagements, workshops and more!
Thank you for your interest in Experiencing FoodShare! We love sharing our solutions and hosting groups who are interested to learn more about our work, volunteer, or seek advice in starting similar programs in their own communities. Visiting FoodShare in person is the best way to see our work in action, understand our diverse range of programming, ask questions and meet our staff of experts.
People often share how meaningful their time is with us, whether it be volunteering, team building or attending a workshop.
FoodShare appreciates and welcomes interest in our work and there are many ways you can experience our work. As Sarah Elton said in her book Locavore, FoodShare “runs a program for every link in the food chain, from growing, to processing, to distribution”. Please click on the links in the side panel for more information on how you can experience FoodShare.
