Our client choice, supermarket-style food pantry runs three distributions per week for two hours each. Our distribution hours are Mondays, 2:00 - 4:00; Tuesdays, 10:30 - 12:30; and Thursdays, 3:00 - 5:00.

We seek volunteers for all three shifts, but especially Mondays and Thursdays! Your time commitment will involve arriving at least one hour prior to the start of distribution, and staying through the entire two hour shift.

Responsibilities include stocking shelves, sorting and storing produce, helping clients shop, breaking down boxes, and routine clean up. We are also seeking a dedicated desk volunteer who is responsible for checking in clients when they arrive.

This is energetic, fast-paced work with a lovely group of core volunteers from the community! We strive to provide food to those in need in the most welcoming, warm way possible. Bring your customer service skills! Bilingual abilities are definitely a plus as well.

Please apply ONLY if you will be committing to volunteer with us at least once per week for at least one month. We are unable to train volunteers for a one-time shift.
