Volunteer to Distribute Meals

  • OUSD is looking for additional volunteers to support distribution of food and supplies to families in need during the fall. Food and supply distributions are taking place at 22 OUSD school sites throughout Oakland.

    We are currently seeking volunteers who are employees of OUSD, employees of an OUSD-approved partner (for example, after-school program staff), existing OUSD volunteers (such as through Ed Fund), and other community members. Note that community member volunteers will need to be cleared through the Megan's Law registered sex offender database.

    In order to volunteer, you must be (1) healthy (meaning that you have no underlying health conditions and no symptoms for cold or flu, including cough or fever over 100 degrees); (2) under the age of 65; (3) to your knowledge, have not had contact with COVID-19-positive individuals in the past 2 weeks; and (4) be willing and able to interact with students and families. We are also looking for volunteers who can commit to our sites on a regular basis. Please be aware that safety and social-distancing protocols will be implemented (and required) at the school sites.

    Please use this form to let us know your availability to support with distribution. We are working to be as responsive as possible but our response may be delayed. As a follow up, you may receive a request from the "Sign Up Genius" App to ask you to sign up for sites/timeslots. Thank you for your patience and interest in supporting Oakland families.



  • The Oakland Education Fund is organizing volunteers to support our schools from home during the shelter in place directive.

    Can you volunteer to help remotely by prepping mailing materials, providing tech support or tutoring, etc? We want to hear from you!
