VOLUNTEER WITH FEED & SEED

Are you looking for an opportunity to support local farmers and help families in need access fresh produce? Check out our volunteer opportunities below!

PACK FRESH FOOD BOXES FOR FAMILIES IN NEED

Our fresh food box programs provide individuals facing food insecurity with a healthy variety of fresh produce, including items sourced from local farmers. We rely on the generous support of volunteers to help us pack boxes in a warehouse which will be delivered to sites in Pickens, Oconee and Abbeville. 

What to expect on packing day: Arrive at Feed & Seed between 10:15 and 10:30 so that you have time to sign in, wash your hands, and put on hair nets and gloves. Once all volunteers have arrived, we will circle up to discuss our Fresh Food Box programs and go over food safety guidelines. We are a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) facility and do require all volunteers to comply with the following expectations:

  • – Closed-toed shoes required.
  • – No shorts or dresses.
  • – Hairnets are required. PPE will be provided.
  • – Beard Nets are required for the bearded folk. PPE will be provided.
  • – Gloves are required. PPE will be provided. Hand-washing will be required prior to putting on gloves.

SUPPORT A LOCAL FARMER

Get your hands dirty and assist our local growers out on their farms. This may look like harvesting, sowing seeds, turning over fields, or other seasonal needs they have to continue providing us with fresh, high quality produce grown right here in South Carolina.

HELP HOST SPECIAL EVENTS

Every so often, Feed & Seed hosts fun and educational events for the community. Volunteers may help run kids activities, greet customers in our Green Market, share information about Feed & Seed to visitors, etc. The number of volunteers needed will depend on the type of event.
