Food Pantry Volunteer- Volunteers needed for food pantry, 2x/week, 14 year olds or older. Volunteers assist with packing food orders for food pantry clients. The Pantry is open Tuesdays from 11-1 and Thursday evenings from 5:30-7:30.

Nonjudgmental individuals, a van or large vehicle for food pickups and a sense of humor is always helpful!
