Thank you for your interest in volunteering! During the Covid-19 crisis, and until the CDC guidelines allow for larger gatherings of people, Loudoun Hunger Relief is limited in our volunteer opportunities. Although teen guidelines are listed below for future guidance, we are not allowing teen volunteers at this time. All volunteers are asked to sign an additional waiver regarding Covid-19. Volunteers must wear masks at all times, and maintain six feet of distance between people. We are also limited to 10 people in any workspace, open air or not, at any time.  For all these reasons, it may be some time, often several months or more, before your volunteer application can be accepted and volunteer opportunities become available to you. Once you complete your application and submit, please watch for emails from our Volunteer Coordinator, Ruby Escobar, with information on open opportunities. Please make sure her email,, is not going to your spam folder. Please fill out your application and read through all our volunteer information prior to contacting Ruby with any questions. Thank you for your understanding as we all work in together in these challenging times to make sure that people have food.

Without the dedication of over 525 people who give more than 12,000 hours of their time in an average year, Loudoun Hunger Relief simply could not fulfill its mission. We are a hard working, friendly, and dynamic group. The jobs our volunteers perform on site can be physically demanding and very busy. The reward however is immensely and immediately gratifying and extremely worthwhile!

Please read our Volunteer Code before you create an account at the below link. As part of the process, you’ll be asked to complete an application, including a waiver, and you’ll be invited to attend an orientation session prior to being able to select volunteer opportunities.

Teens: Our minimum age for volunteering is 13, and those between 13 and 16 years old must volunteer with a parent or guardian. Please create your accounts together at the below link.

Community service for teens is often a requirement for school and it’s a great way for students to build their resumes and skill sets.  More importantly, volunteer work for children can be a life-changing experience, one that allows them to expand their horizons and instill the importance of helping their fellow man. You must be in the age range from 6th grade to 12th grade and require school volunteer hours. You can volunteer from home by working on one of the projects at this link.

Court Mandated Community Service: Please check the box for court-mandated community service, and supply your probation officer or lawyer’s contact information on the application. We do not accept violent offences or theft. DURING COVID, we are not accepting court-mandated service due to space constraints.
