The mission of the St. Cloud Community Pantry is to reduce hunger in the St Cloud community by providing food to local residents in need. Food is provided through the generosity of our partners, supporters and our volunteers do all the work to distribute it to those who need it.
One of the greatest need in the pantry is assistance with administrative duties. Since the pantry has so many volunteers, is provided with a generous amount of donations and has a steady clientele, they rely heavily on those individuals who can give of their time to keep track of all the ins and outs of the organization. This position would require basic computer knowledge, filing, and answering of phones.
The St. Cloud Community Pantry is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM. Volunteers for this position are asked to choose a consistent day and commit to at least 6 months. You need to be a person with a heart to serve and be positive.
