Volunteer

The Interchange Food Pantry wouldn’t be known for serving its guests respectfully and connecting them with the high-quality food they need without its outstanding volunteers. They help prepare the pantry hours before guests arrive. Once guests arrive, volunteers help with greeting our guests, intake and assisting guests to select their food.

Shifts with an average length of three hours on one of our days of operation or prep days can make the difference for Interchange and its guests.
