Federal Hill House runs the two busiest food pantries in the state, located in the Providence neighborhoods of Federal Hill and Olneyville. Last year we served more than 6,000 unique households with more than 36,000 visits. Demand for food support continues to grow, and with your help can help share healthy, culturally responsive food with our neighbors.

We need volunteers Tuesday - Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for various tasks including greeting guests, helping them select food items throughout the pantry, and restocking shelves as needed. On Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. we need help unloading food deliveries and restocking shelves.

If you are interested in helping out, please contact Michele Matott at volunteer@federalhillhouse.org or at (401) 421-4722.
