Looking for a great after work or school activity? Volunteeering in our drive-thru food pantry is a great way to earn community service hours for school or work, get some exercise, or meet new people AND make a difference by serving more than 2,000 families each Thursday.

Volunteer Responsibilities:

  • Loading cars as they come through the drive-thru
  • Directing traffic into, through, and out of the building
  • Bagging bulk produce or food items into family size bags

Training Provided

  • No experience required - we'll train you at the start of your first shift!

Safety Protocols:

  • Gloves required (bring your own or we can provide these for you)
  • Closed-toe shoes required

What else do I need to know?

  • This project requires repetitive lifting and bending
  • This project does take place indoors in our chute area and some outdoor for traffic positions. The garage doors will be open on both ends so the chute will be warmer in teh summer and colder in the winter.
  • Volunteers should be comfortable standing for a 3-hour shift with minimal breaks.
  • This project does take place in a fast-paced, drive-thru environment with heavy traffic so it may not right for everyone.
  • Some accomodations can be made. Please let us know prior to signing up if you need accomodations so we can determine if this project is a good fit for you!
