These extra mobile sites at the schools were created for this purpose and we need volunteers! Volunteering at a DMARC Mobile Food Pantry is just like helping a friend shop for groceries!

  • Helping people choose food items
  • Bagging items
  • Carrying items to people's cars or other modes of transportation
  • Assisting the DMARC Mobile Food Pantry driver with miscellaneous tasks as needed
