THINK YOU'D L IKE TO VOLUNTEER?


If you do, we have several different volunteer positions available in our pantry!

We are looking for volunteers every other Friday to help us run The Hope Market local food pantry.

Greeter:
Must be friendly and inviting. In this station you will greet every client that comes
through the door, taking their full name and some other information then
showing them to their seat if we have a bit of a wait.

Host:
Do you love to meet new people aren't afraid to strike up a conversation with a
total stranger? You might make a good host. Our hosts take time to get to know
the clients, checking in with them on how they are doing and how their day is
going. Be the smile that makes someone feel loved.

Traffic Mover:
Maybe you like to love people, but might be a little to shy to strike up
conversations, than maybe this one is for you. Our Traffic Mover will keep the line
moving by calling the next client in line and working with the Greeter to keep
things moving along.

Pantry Aide:
You will work with each client to make sure they get their food and get it bagged.
You are what they are here for. So smile!

Helper:
Are you strong? Don't mind breaking a sweat if it is helping someone? Than maybe
we can count on you to help our clients carry their groceries to their vehicle.

Mission Statement

The Hope Market mission is to eliminate hunger and food insecurity in our community, through the distribution of nutritious food and personal hygiene items. We empower neighbors to share resources, providing opportunities towards an improved quality of life.

Description

God's timing is perfect and man's, really is not. We wanted to open a food pantry in 2019 but nothing was coming together. After 3 months of trying to make it work, we gave up. Then, in November of 2020, God showed us it was time. Out of nowhere, we were offered a free space to use at The ARC through our church, Restoration Church Gardner. We opened 4 weeks later with fully stocked shelves and volunteers ready to help. We currently serve over 170 families in the Gardner/Edgerton area.
