Healthy Food Pantry volunteers commit to serving one 2-3 hour shift every other week at the community of your choosing. Hours vary by community, but take place on weekdays, mostly during daytime hours.

Volunteers must complete an online application, pass a background check (no cost to the volunteer), and complete a self-paced online orientation. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
