Due to COVID-19 protocols and restrictions, Walk-In volunteer are not permitted.  Please visit our sign-up page to learn about the many amazing volunteer opportunities at NEFP.

EMO's Northeast Emergency Food Program provides nutritionally balanced food for families and individuals in emergency situations, and we depend on over 250 volunteers to do so.

NEFP has split our volunteer shifts into two groups: Day Shifters and Evening Shifters. During this time, we ask that volunteers choose the group that best fits their schedule. This shift separation is an essential safety measure we've taken to reduce the spread of Covid-19 by eliminating crossover of staff, volunteers and clients. Once you've chosen either the Day or Evening group, NEFP staff will reach out with a link to your Group's online scheduling page. Once you receive the link, you will be able to sign up for shifts.

To view NEFP's current volunteer needs, please visit our Volunteer Sign-up page. You may select a Day Shift or Evening Shift, and view other Current Needs.
