Volunteers in our food pantry help feed thousands of people a year - including children and families.


Goodman Community Center runs a busy food pantry three days a week, serving over 125 families each week. We have an exciting opportunity to increase access to food for our pantry clients through donations from Hy-Vee on East Washington Ave. We’re looking for two volunteers to pick up a large donation once a week on Saturdays and deliver the food to GCC.

Volunteers must have a clean driving record, feel comfortable driving a cargo van, be able to lift 25 lbs many times over a 1-2 hour period, and be able to bend, stoop, twist, and kneel frequently when loading and unloading the vehicle. A volunteer with a pick-up truck could also use their own vehicle.

Hours are every Saturday from 10:30 am-12:30 pm (somewhat flexible but must start after 10 am), and volunteers are asked to make a three month commitment.
