Thanks to community members like you, we can continue to provide food to our network of Food Pantries throughout Marion and Polk counties.

Warehouse volunteers support our warehouse team in the following areas:

Volunteer Action Center
Sort and repack donated food into family sized amounts for our partners.

Retail Recovery
Sort and repack fresh produce, dairy products, and refrigerated items donated from local grocery stores to ensure only the highest quality food is distributed to our neighbors.

Order Assembly
Assemble orders of food for our partners by locating, tracking, and stacking cases of food onto pallets.


Due to COVID-19, we've limited our shifts sizes to allow for social distancing and we require volunteers to commit to a regular, weekly shift to limit the number of individuals staff and volunteers have regular contact with.


At this time, all of our shifts are filled and we are creating a list of volunteers to contact when new shifts become available. If you would like to learn more about our on-going volunteer opportunities and be added to the list please let us know!
