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

About

Goodman Community Center has an exciting opportunity to increase access to food for our food pantry clients through donations from Hy-Vee on East Washington Ave - all we need to do is pick it up! This food goes towards helping the 125 families that come to our pantry every week.

We’re looking for two volunteers to pick up a large donation once a week on Saturdays and deliver the food to GCC. Only a couple of hours each week would provide even more resources to all of the families who visit our pantry!

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.

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.
