Want to make a difference in your community? Become a food pantry volunteer and help ensure that the more than 1 million hungry Hoosiers have food on their table and go to bed healthy and happy.
Food pantry volunteers will load pre-boxed food boxes of meat, dairy, and fresh produce into client cars as they come through our drive-through pantry. You will serve more than 300 households each day you volunteer. Volunteers are also needed to direct traffic into, through, and out of the building.
Some heavy lifting is involved - up to 30 lbs. For example, a daily distribution could look like:
Produce boxes weighing 10 lbs
Bags of apples or oranges weighing 5 lbs each
Loose cabbages weighing 1 pound each
Cheese or butter weighing 1 pound each
Half gallons of milk weighing 5 lbs each
Frozen meat product (like chicken nuggets) weighing 5 lbs each
Cartons of eggs weighing 1 pound each
Pre-boxed dairy, produce, and meat boxes weighing up to 30 lbs
Accommodations can be made if needed. Just let us know!
No experience required - we'll train you at the start of your first shift! No commitments required, you can volunteer for one shift or as many as you would like!
Volunteers are needed for the following days and times:
