Volunteer Opportunities

It's clear the benefits of volunteering are huge - improved physical and mental health, new friendships, reduces stress and creates a sense of purpose and deeper self-confidence.  

We know you have a busy life, but your help is so important to our Pantry, and it doesn't have to be a big commitment!  We have opportunities for 1 hour or up to 4 hours.  You choose!

We are a non-profit, working with very limited funds and subsist entirely on volunteers for support in day-to-day operations.
