Most of our volunteers work one three-hour shift each month. They work during one of our three, three-hour shifts each week - Saturdays and Tuesdays we are open from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and then on Thursdays we are open from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. Perry Township and Beech Grove residents come to the food pantry to request services. Our modified process in response to COVID-19 has us insisting that our neighbors in need remain in their vehicles. Our volunteers greet our guests and then food (mostly non-perishable) is gathered from the pantry shelves based on the needs and size of the family being served and then we take it to the vehicles in turn.
