Current Volunteer Opportunities
Can you spare an hour or two a month, every other week, or each week? Then we have a job for you! Explore the open volunteer positions below.
We are a “choice” pantry which means our pantry guests are able to make their own food choices. We are looking for guides who will help them choose those items. You may share ideas on how to use certain ingredients with our guests. The pantry is open Tuesdays from 10-noon and Thursdays from 5-7. If you’d like to volunteer as a team of two, you’re welcome to. We are looking for regular, semi-regular and back-up volunteers.
You are welcome to “shadow” another volunteer during pantry hours to see if this is something you would like to do.
