Emergency Food Pantry

Our Family Resource Center is home to our Emergency Food Pantry and Senior Stockbox Program. We are in need of regular volunteers to help serve our clients during our program hours, which are Monday and Wednesday between 12:00-4:00pm and Tuesday mornings from 9:00-11:00am.

During a regular shift you'll need to assist in receiving orders, packing bags/boxes of food, packing hygiene packages, distributing the food to the public, sorting donated food, and helping people carry boxes to their cars.

Masks are required on site, and gloves must be worn when handling food - we are following all CDC/health officials/city/state guidelines . We are able to accommodate one volunteer per shift, and we ask that volunteers are practicing all recommended guidelines during the pandemic in their personal lives. Volunteers must be able to stand for 2 hours, be able to lift boxes that weigh up to 45lbs regularly, be able to maneuver around a small workspace, be in good health, work well with others, have a positive/outgoing personality, and an open mind. Prior to volunteering, you will be asked to come in for an orientation/training.

Each volunteer shift is 2 hours, and we ask that you commit to at least one shift a month, though more hours are always welcome.

Adults, and seniors who meet the requirements for volunteering and are interested in helping get needed food resources out to the community during this time of need, please contact us as soon as possible for more details, or with any questions!
