BILINGUAL Food Pantry Volunteer

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: ELMWOOD PARK BIBLE CHURCH

The Elmwood Park Community Food Pantry is seeking volunteers to work from 930-1230 every Saturday.
The Food Pantry is open to assist those who are suffering from food insecurity that has become magnified during this time of economic instability.
Bilingual volunteers are needed to assist the majority of the Pantry guests.
This role does involve Covid compliant contact with our guests. At this time masks are optional.
The pantry model employed at EPCFP is one in which the guests "shop" the food items available. Volunteers need to be able to be on their feel the entire morning.
Volunteers are needed to guide the flow of the guests, help guests with retrieving food from freezers or refrigerators and assure that the shelves are filled with all available food products through out the morning. If physically able, volunteers may be asked to assist guests by carrying food to their cars. After the pantry is closed to guests the volunteers remain until 12:30 PM to restock shelves/freezers/refrigerators.

Mission Statement

Elmwood Park Community Church is uniquely positioned and located to have the maximum impact upon the Village of Elmwood Park for the glory of God through various ministries. Two service ministries have been established to aid anyone within the church, the Village of Elmwood Park and surrounding communities via the Food Pantry and Clothes Closet. Food and clothing will be provided to those in need through the financial and material donations of the church, the Greater Chicago Food Depository, other institutions and the community on an emergent basis and weekly on Saturday mornings. These services will be provided regardless of race, religion, sex or color.

Description

Although the Elmwood Park Community Church has been active in the community for many years the Food Pantry and Clothes Closet have only been serving the community on a routine basis since December 2020. Currently we are serving on average 72 households/130 individuals on a weekly basis in the pantry and over 40 in the clothes closet twice a month.
