Volunteers During Distribution

About

Our Food Pantry serves around 200 households every month through Food Distribution Programs at our facility. The program provides food boxes put together by the volunteer team on the days of distribution. Food Box Volunteers are needed for this program.

Hours for food preparation and distribution are:

1st Tuesday after 2nd Monday preparation phase 7:30 am - 11:30 am
distribution phase 9 am -11 am (client contact)

This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to see firsthand the impact their time spent serving makes to these seniors, veterans & their families. The food boxes typically weigh about 100 pounds and are distributed to an eligible family once per month. We are proud to offer recurring spots or just once to anyone interested in serving with us. Organizations with volunteer teams of 6 work well in this spot.

*This program is ideal for someone who has no major physical limitations. There is occasional moderate lifting (box of fruit/bread, etc), most positions at this food line require standing for the majority of the shift.

*If interested in this position but disabled or physically limited- please indicate in your request for this program and we will make accommodations for you or help you find another great Volunteer Opportunity.
