Weekdays

We need volunteers throughout the week to sort food, stock shelves in the warehouse and pantry and  help prepare the pantry for “shoppers” on Saturday mornings. Stocking and sorting volunteers must be able to lift 50lbs.

Drivers Needed

The Pantry depends on volunteers to pick up food from local stores and also to help deliver food to the homes of clients with disabilities. In addition, we also distribute food to other community pantry organizations based on need.
