The Food Pantry

We are looking for regular, weekly, or bi-weekly volunteers to help on our food distribution days – Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. These volunteer shifts are for adults only. Volunteer shifts start as early as 8:30am and the last shift ends around 3:15pm (1:15pm on Thursday) and can last anywhere from 1.5 – 4 hours to work with your schedule.

Duties include helping get ready for our distribution, sorting through and bagging produce, unloading food donations & deliveries, making pre-packed shelf stable bags, taking bags out to clients, restocking shelves, and helping where necessary.

If you are interested or have questions, please email Tim Nistler, Director of the Food Pantry, at timn@friendsindeedpas.org or Rion Waller, Food Pantry Manager, at rionw@friendsindeedpas.org.
