FoodBank24 A 24 Hour New Media Telethon

Volunteer at #FoodBank24!

Now you can be a part of the action at the 24 Hour Telethon...
Sign up for one of three volunteer sessions at our Raleigh Headquarters on September 11 or 12. Help us reach our goal of $50,000 by asking your friends a family to sponsor you per pound of food that you sort. The top five volunteer fundraisers of each session will be interviewed on the show.

All volunteers will be entered into a raffle to receive fantastic prizes such as jewelry from Kendra Scott, gift cards from Goodberry's Frozen Custard, and books from Quail Ridge Books! And, we'll have free food!

September 11 is the National Day of Service! Volunteering at the Telethon is a perfect way to give back.


Step 2: Start Your Fundraiser

After you sign up, launch your online virtual food drive fundraiser! It's a quick and easy way for your friends and family to sponsor you.

Each volunteer will sort 400 pounds during a session. Use this handy guide in your language:

  • $.05 per pound = $20 donation
  • $.10 per pound = $40 donation
  • $.25 per pound = $100 donation

The top five fundraisers for each session will be invited to appear on the show!
