The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank welcomes group volunteers. We believe volunteering provides an opportunity for team building. Corporate groups might consider using our board room for a staff meeting or training. All that we ask in return is a minimum of two hours of volunteer service as part of the day’s activities. Please view our FAQ page for more information on signing up with a volunteer group.
