Become a Volunteer.


Every year over 200 people take time out of their busy lives to volunteer at Feeding Laramie Valley. They come from all walks of life; from high school to retirement. Some are local Albany County, Wyoming residents, while others are students from the University of Wyoming. All are motivated individuals who share the common goal and passion for food security. 


Our volunteers play a crucial role within our programs, providing valuable support to our staff and participants. Their dedication ensures we distribute and share the best quality fruits and vegetables and assist with promoting our mission and philosophy with community members at local farmers markets and events.  


Volunteering with us is an exciting way to spend your free time, learn new skills, make new friends, and work alongside our staff. If you are passionate, reliable, friendly, out-going, interested in food systems, and enjoy working outdoors, then you may be a great fit for our volunteer opportunities! 


At Feeding Laramie Valley, we have volunteer positions throughout the year.
