Want to make a difference in your community? Become a Gleaners volunteer and help ensure that the more than 1 million hungry Hoosiers have food on their table and go to bed healthy and happy.

Gleaners 2 Go volunteers will help delivery grocery orders to clients waiting curbside outside our food pantry. This event does take place outdoors as you will be walking out to cars in our parking lot. Since the start of the pandemic, we have had to change the way we can distribute food to keep our neighbors safe, so we now have this curbside pickup option, a drive-thru pantry, and our regular inside shopping.

This project takes place:
Mondays 12-3:15pm and/or 3-6pm
Fridays 7-10:15am and/or 10am-1pm


You will serve more than 20 families each day you volunteer.

  • Some heavier lifting is involved - up to 20 lbs. For example, each order might consist of:
    • Produce boxes weighing 10 lbs
    • Bags of apples or oranges weighing 5 lbs each
    • Half gallons of milk weighing 5 lbs each
    • Frozen meat product (like chicken nuggets) weighing 5 lbs each
    • Cartons of eggs weighing 1 pound each
    • Cleaning supplies or hygiene items weighing under 5 lbs.
  • Accommodations can be made if needed. Just let us know!


No experience required - we'll train you at the start of your first shift! No commitments required, you can volunteer for one shift or as many as you would like!


**All volunteers working within 6 feet of others for more than 15 minutes required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status.

Just visit gleaners.volunteerhub.com to view available spaces and register directly!

Ages 13+ (anyone under 18 does need to volunteer alongside a parent/guardian each time)


This project takes place:
Mondays 12-3:15pm and/or 3-6pm
