Helping in P2P's Food Pantry

Person-to-Person's Darien Food Pantry provides families in need with a week's worth of groceries using a drive through model. Volunteers prepack fresh produce and meat and help to distribute food. Clients remain in their cars while pantry volunteers gather and place food on assigned table. Clients load food into their cars. Volunteers also stock shelves and prepack food orders according to shopping lists, based on the Food Pyramid. Volunteers are also involved in sorting food received in bulk after delivery. Volunteers coordinate the delivery of bread, meat and produce from local suppliers. Volunteer shifts fall within our operating hours M-F 9-11am ad 11am to 1pm.
Masks are required. Volunteers' temperature will be screened before each shift. Gloves are optional but will be provided if preferred. All volunteers are expected to practice safe social distancing.
