Volunteer at the Food Pantry

We would love your help!

We have an amazing group of volunteers, and would love to add you to our team. We need volunteers on:

  • Thursday and Friday evenings 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM in Keoing Hall on the Lower Level

    • Lift boxes (20 - 30 lbs. or more) when cases of food are delivered to the pantry.  

    • Bag fresh produce and set up the tables

  • Saturday mornings to give out food, break up boxes, and/or assist clients by carrying their heavy shopping carts up a flight of stairs between 7:30 AM and 12:00 PM

Pack Groceries

You’ll help pack grocery bags with assorted items, tear boxes apart and distribute bags of groceries to our clients.. 

Transport Boxes

We ask that volunteers are able to lift heavy boxes from 20 to 30 lbs. or move them on carts that can weigh about 50 lbs. This position may require you to carry boxes or crates bags of up to 20 lbs. up a flight of stairs. 

We’d love your help with any of these roles or another way you are able to contribute. Complete the form below with your details and make sure to include the days and times you are available. We will reply answering any questions you may have and confirm your participation. Thank you!
