God's Pantry Food Bank relies on donations of both food and money to operate our programs. Of equal importance are the volunteers who make invaluable contributions of time and energy. In fact, more than 6,000 volunteers donated 25,475 hours of their time last year to support our missions to reduce hunger.
God's Pantry Food Bank utilizes volunteers to staff pantry sites, sort food drive donations, repack bulk food product, suport special events, take referrals for clien ts in need of food assistance, help at Kids Cafe locations, assist with our annual Client Survey, help with mailings, and deliver food boxes to satellite pantry programs in other counties.
