We are seeking volunteers to help once per month, on the same date each month (i.e., every 2nd Wednesday or every 4th Friday, etc.). The volunteer would come to our pantry on the assigned date each month and, with help from our volunteer staff, load up their vehicle and make food deliveries to 2-10 neighbors each month. Project Concern will provide and pack all food, and give the volunteers all the information they need.
Valid driver's license required as well as auto insurance. Must have room in your vehicle for several boxes of food and be able to lift up to 30 lbs at a time and go up and down stairs.

Serve low-income individuals and families by feeding the needy, meeting emergency basic needs and providing a bridge/safety net to help them become self-sufficient.
Project Concern of Cudahy - St. Francis is a food pantry that provides emergency food and personal care items for households whose income is 185% of the poverty line, this is a guideline set down by the federal government. The goal of the pantry is to help alleviate hunger, demonstrate community compassion and provide patrons with referrals to other community resources and to address the underlying causes of poverty through advocacy and empowerment.
The pantry has 2 part-time employees. Additionally over 70 regular volunteers do a variety of invaluable tasks that keep the pantry humming.
Hunger Task Force provides much of the food that the pantry distributes. However, the pantry still needs additional help to respond to the immediate nutritional needs of low-income people living in the cities of Cudahy and St. Francis. Project Concern works with local congregations, businesses and the community at large to meet those needs.
