We're so glad you've chosen VEAP as your place to volunteer! If you are 18 or older, close this tab and register through our Adult Fast Track application instead. Please note: The minimum age to volunteer is 9 years old if accompanied by an adult. Youth ages 12+ may volunteer independently.


During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re asking our volunteers to be flexible while helping out in our food pantry. Volunteers in the Warehouse and Distribution areas could be sorting through food donations, fulfilling participant orders by shopping through our pantry on their behalf, assisting participant’s as they load groceries into their vehicles, or assisting participant check-in as an outdoor intake volunteer. Outdoor intake is only for volunteers ages 18 and older.


To become a VEAP Volunteer:


1) Complete this registration form.

2) Sign-up for your first volunteer shift. You can schedule up to five shifts at the end of this form.

3) Arrive 15 minutes early for your first shift, receive a brief tour and orientation, and get started with your on-the-job training.


We look forward to connecting with you soon! If you have any questions, contact our Volunteer Department at volunteerdept@veap.org or 952.955.8323.
