We are 100% volunteer-run, so we are always looking for more volunteers!


Once every two months, on the second Saturday, help pick up the red bags and deliver them to The Salvation Army Food Bank.  Drivers are given a specific driving route.  Driver’s typically take anywhere from 1-2 hours to get the donations. It is best to have a partner to run out and pick-up the bags.


Warehouse volunteers help weigh, sort and stock the pantry shelves.  Any surplus is delivered to other local pantries and organizations.


Volunteers are needed for other miscellaneous projects throughout the year including cleaning the red bags, re-labeling them, and other projects as they come up.
