We depend on volunteers to distribute food and help organize pantry operations.
We use volunteers every second and fourth Friday of each month to help with distribution. Volunteers can expect to sign people in, bag groceries, and help out clients in general.
We are currently in need of daytime assistance to help set the pantry up for opening on the 2nd and 4th Friday’s from 10:00am to 2:30pm. We are also looking for substitute volunteers that would be able to step in on short notice and student volunteers to help carry groceries; these hours would be from 3:00pm – 7:00pm. Please email the volunteer coordinator if you are interested.
During the Week
We slso have a number of people involved in behind the scenes work, preparing us to be open each week. These jobs involve a variety of things, from unpacking and stocking donated food, sorting bread and cleaning, to going to stores to pick up donations. We are currently looking for substitute drivers to help with the store pickups; typically these hours are 7:00am-9:00am. Please email the volunteer coordinator if you are interested.
Spring and Summer
During the spring and summer we need volunteers to help maintain our vegetable garden. Assistance is needed with planting, weeding, watering and harvesting. Community Service hours can be earned working in the garden during the summer months as well as during the school year.
