Local Matters Volunteers

Volunteers are crucial to creating healthier communities.

Local Matters’ and Columbus Food Rescue’s network of volunteers help advance our missions every single day, whether it be through a garden clean-up or a food rescue. Volunteering helps create positive community impact, allows you to share your passions with others, and builds your own knowledge and skill set.


*NOTE: Local Matters requires all new volunteers to complete an orientation prior to their shift. New volunteer orientation information can be found via the Events page here.
