Island Harvest is the largest hunger relief organization on Long Island. We rely on over 60,000 hours of annual service that volunteers provide to help us in our mission to end hunger and reduce food waste.  We offer volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, friends and groups that are fun, engaging and educational.  From organizing fundraisers and food collections, to helping in our offices and distributing food, there are lots of ways for you to help.  Most importantly, you’ll be helping our neighbors in need.  What a powerful way to spend a few hours!  Whether it’s just you, a group of your friends, family or co-workers, signing up is easy.  Please click an option below to register and review available volunteer opportunities.

Court-Ordered Community Service?  While we accept referrals for court-mandated community service, we cannot accommodate all candidates. If applicable, please send an e-mail to to request a copy of our Mandated Court Ordered Community Service guidelines prior to continuing with your application.

Attention Volunteers: Our volunteer event registration website will be upgraded sometime in the second half of May. It will look different but will provide the same functionality. All of your information will be in the system as before. If you have any questions, please contact us at

We value the privacy of our contributors, food donors, volunteers and friends, and do not sell, distribute or trade information with any other businesses or non-profit organizations.
