Volunteer Opportunities with Food for Life Global

We receive numerous emails every day from people all over the world wishing to volunteer their time or specific skills in furthering the mission of Food for Life Global.

Because the Food for Life Global offices has limited space, most of our volunteers work from their homes. Food for Life Global is the headquarters for all the Food for Life projects around the world, so we do not operate an actual feeding program, but rather support the hundreds of FFL Projects around the world, including many in the US. We do however get directly involved in disaster relief operations by recruiting volunteers and coordinating relief efforts.
The following information should give you some ideas on ways you could get involved in helping Food for Life Global working from the comforts of your home or office. For those who would like to get directly involved in feeding the needy or assisting a Food for Life affiliate program somewhere in the world, please let us know where you live and we will be happy to refer you to a Food for Life project needing help in an area nearest you. Some of the opportunities include gardening, teaching children English, art therapy for orphans, cottage industry training for poor women in India, etc.

Food for Life Volunteers can be classified as one of three types, depending on the work they do: direct contact volunteers, technical assistance volunteers, or advocates.
