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 stock shelves, assist clients as they shop, bag groceries, and collect carts from the parking lot. Our food pantry experience is set up just like a grocery store.

Volunteer positions within the pantry include:

  • Stocking shelves with fresh produce, frozen meat, dry goods, and household and hygiene items.
  • Answering questions for shoppers like how much of each item they can choose, sharing recipes, and directing them to the next station.
  • Bagging groceries or loading groceries into cars, if needed
  • Collecting carts from the parking lot and sanitizing them for the next shopper (this position is mainly an outdoors position)
  • 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:

Tuesdays 8:30-11:30am, 11am-2pm, and/or 1:30-5pm
Wednesdays 8:30-11:30am, 11am-2pm, and/or 1:30-5pm
Thursdays 1:30-5pm and/or 4:30-8pm DRIVE THRU PANTRY ONLY
Saturdays 8:30am-12:30pm DRIVE THRU PANTRY ONLY

Ages 9+ (anyone under 18 does need to volunteer alongside a parent/guardian)
