Volunteers are essential to the success of Minnie's Food Pantry.
For many recipients, the encounters they have with volunteers at Minnie's Food Pantry are just as important as the food they come to receive. By volunteering at Minnie's Food Pantry, you will make a difference in the life of a person in need.
Volunteering at Minnie's Food Pantry is a one-of-a-kind, red carpet experience. During your volunteer shift, you will be responsible for a variety of tasks, including but not limited to those listed below. Only through your efforts can Minnie's Food Pantry achieve our mission of feeding the hungry and we are so grateful for all of our volunteers and look forward to the time we get to spend and serve together. All volunteers must schedule in advance - no "walk-in" volunteers are accepted.
Volunteer tasks include
- interacting with clients
- providing concierge service to clients
- cart running

- sorting items
- preparing boxes
- delivering to seniors
- day labor workers

In order to meet the needs of all of our volunteers and create a more engaged community, Minnie's Food Pantry provides numerous volunteer opportunities for groups of all sizes. Whether you are in individual, a family or a corporation, Minnie's Food Pantry is ready to sing and dance the day away as we work together to create a better community! Currently, there is a great need for off-site volunteers such as food drives, pick-up, and delivery drivers, and Minnie Food Pantry advocates.
