Volunteers staff our food pantry Monday through Thursday from 9 am until 2 pm. They register clients, help them shop in the Choice Food Pantry, assist with stocking shelves, help unload delivery trucks, and perform other duties as needed.
Volunteers, including groups, also assist with our monthly produce markets, holiday programs, and light maintenance work around the pantry.
