Borderlands Volunteer Opportunities
Do you want to volunteer? We have an opportunity for everyone, whether you are on your own mission to give back,
or your entire group wants to take part. Without volunteers Borderlands would not be able to do the work we do,
so thank you in advance for your interest!
Volunteer at a Weekly Produce Market
Volunteer at any of our weekend Produce on Wheels distribution markets. We typically have 10-15 sites any given weekend, and so this is a great way to spend a few hours and get involved.
Get the Word Out: Host an Event
Getting fresh produce to the community is only possible if people know about Borderlands. Help us get the word out by hosting an event at your local college, school campus, neighborhood event or church. Borderlands' staff is more than happy to help you with your event.
This pilot program aims to work with volunteers willing to deliver produce boxes to the elderly, disabled and other vulnerable populations who cannot attend weekly POWWOW markets.
Veterans Exact Thanks needs your help, the newly launched Borderlands program works to collect non-perishable donations from Borderlands supporters. While Borderlands focuses solely on rescuing and distributing produce, we understand the immense hardships faced by veterans who remain food insecure. Volunteer to help grow our VETs program.
Form a Borderlands College Group
Some of our biggest supporters are students, and an amazing way for you to get involved is by helping form a Borderlands student group on campus. Your group can help host campus events, get the word out with students and even host a produce market on campus.
Host a Movie Screening
Man in the Maze, a recent Sundance Short Film Challenge winner is a great film showcasing the work of Borderlands. This film serves as a great media piece for any community event, a great way to introduce people to Borderlands, and the importance of stopping food waste.
