Food Pantry Help Needed Today!

Open Opportunity


Looking for a way to support your community during these uncertain times? Now more than ever, YOU can make a difference at the Twin Cities' largest food pantry! Our opportunities welcome everyone, don’t require experience, and are of course fun! 

Open Opportunities (Ages 12+): 

  •  Ensure only the best, most fresh items reach our pantry's shelves by sorting through food donations. 
  • Assist our indoor shopping (Mondays - Thursdays) model by welcoming participants to our pantry, explaining our process and responding to participant questions, and overall helping us promote a positive shopping experience for our participants. 
  • Assist our drive-thru operations (Fridays Only) by checking-in visitors, taking their food orders, and helping load their groceries into their vehicles. 
  • Transport fresh and healthy food straight to our communities by assisting our Mobile Pantry distributions. 

In this role you will learn new skills, make a difference and see your impact firsthand, as well as gain insight into how food and housing insecurity affects your community. 

All volunteers ages 18 and older must complete a criminal background check prior to volunteering. 

Shifts are typically three hours in length and begin every weekday at 8:15am, 11:15am, or 2:15pm
