LSS Mobile Food Pantry - Northern Lights (Tuesday evenings)


Event Description:

The Lutheran Social Services Mobile Food Pantry offers shelf stable and perishable foods to families and households in need. We are always in need of volunteers! 


The Mobile Food Pantry is organized and led by Lutheran Social Services, not Food Bank of Alaska. 


Duties include packing food boxes, client intake, bringing the food boxes to their vehicles, and additional duties as assigned.


Volunteers should expect to be on their feet for extended periods of time. Comfortable footwear is recommended. Please dress according to the weather as you will be outside.


When arriving at the entrance please let the parking lot attendant know that you are a volunteer.


Accommodation is available for volunteers with special needs. Please contact Dean Humphries before your shift to make arrangements.


In the event that Anchorage School District closes due to inclement weather or unsafe roads, Food Bank of Alaska volunteer events will also close for the day. Food Bank of Alaska does not close if only Mat-Su schools are closed. 


We need a specific number of volunteers to ensure we are able to efficiently serve all clients so we request the following:

  • Please bring only those in your group that have signed up in advance.
  • Do not plan to attend if you are still on the waitlist on event day.
  • Please make sure to cancel your registration if you cannot make it so that we can open up your spot for other volunteers. 


A note about COVID-19: Masks are not required at outdoor events, including the LSS Mobile Food Pantry. If you are unvaccinated or unable to get vaccinated, we strongly recommend that you wear a mask. Please help your fellow volunteers, our staff, and our food recipients by being sure to wash your hands thoroughly and not coming in to volunteer if you are not feeling well or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 including cough, fever, or loss of taste.
