VOLUNTEER TO DISTRIBUTE FOOD
Contact our Volunteer Coordinator by calling the pantry at 804/520-7117 to arrange a date and time for your group. We ask that groups not be larger than 10 per visit.
If your group is scheduled to help with our weekly food distribution, we ask that you arrive by 5:30pm on Thursdays or 11:30am on Fridays in order to be trained for food distribution. Your group should plan to stay for three hours for food distribution.
If group pictures are taken in the pantry, we ask they be taken after distribution or after the pantry task is completed. If employees request a group photo, please know it can be used on our organization's web or Facebook pages.
All groups will complete our Group Volunteer Form at the time of volunteering, available at the pantry.
