Event Description:

Many of our community food pantries and distributions have had to close recently due to other COVID-19 challenges – reduced volunteers, loss of a location, or other concerns.


We are looking for volunteers to help at food distributions listed below.

Shifts may take place outdoors, most often on the sidewalk or a parking lot, and to further protect the health of volunteers and participants we are:

  • Asking all volunteers to wear facial coverings (bandanas are acceptable).
  • Asking participants to keep a sizable distance from one another while in line.
  • Pre-bagging groceries for participants to minimize contact between participants and volunteers.
  • Encouraging all other best practices: cleaning surfaces regularly, providing hand sanitizer, and wearing gloves.

It’s understandable that there are concerns about volunteering at this point. And individuals should consider their own health and well-being before deciding whether to volunteer.


In keeping with CDC guidance, we ask that adults 65 or older, people with serious underlying medical conditions or exhibiting symptoms of any illness, anyone who has traveled internationally, and/or is in any other high-risk group stay home at this time.


Age Requirement: 10-15 years old with an adult and 16 years and older without an adult.


Dress Code: Due to safety concerns, all volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes (no sandals or flip flops) and sleeved shirts (no tank tops). *Anyone wearing open-toed shoes, sandals or sleeveless shirts will not be allowed to volunteer.*


We will be scheduling volunteers as needed. We encourage you to check back often as our needs are ever-changing.
