Volunteering at the School Street Food Pantry
We rely on both student and community volunteers to ensure the success of the School Street Food Pantry.
On nearly every Tuesday and/or Thursday, volunteers receive inventory and stock shelves in the Pantry. This involves unloading boxes from vehicles, lifting boxes onto carts and shelves, sorting items, checking expiration dates and placing inventory on pantry shelves or in storage. The time commitment is approximately 2 hours and is typically in the morning.
On every Friday, and Thursdays in June and July, volunteers operate the pantry for our student users. Tasks may include checking students in, helping students navigate the pantry, handing out produce or refrigerated/frozen foods and answering questions. The time commitment is typically from 3:40 – 6:15 p.m.
At times, there are also special opportunities for individuals to volunteer at the pantry. These opportunities might include assisting at a Drive-Thru Food Drive or packaging bulk products. Groups that would like to assist the pantry may consider holding a food drive.
