More and more members of our community need help keeping food on the table for their families. Be part of a team that provides a dignified and respectful shopping experience for guests accessing the WayForward Resources food pantry when you:

  • Warmly greet Food Pantry guests when they are ready to check out
  • Measure and record food weight for each guest
  • Maintain a clean and organized work station
  • Assist with other Food Pantry tasks, as needed

The ideal volunteer will be available for a minimum of one weekly volunteer shift for at least 6 months. Of course, this is with the understanding that a volunteer may need flexibility for vacation, sickness, appointments, etc.

Volunteers shifts are available Tuesday through Saturday for volunteers aged 18 and above.
