Volunteers are always appreciated at the Centre Street Food Pantry! You may sign up to help while the Pantry is open to shoppers, or at other selected times during the week.
Volunteers aged 15 and under must come with an adult (a parent or group leader).

Please email volunteer@centrestfoodpantry.org for help in scheduling your volunteer hours. You will be directed to fill out and submit the Volunteer Application form, and you will be added to the VolunteerSpot scheduling system.

 Our goal is to treat all of our shoppers with respect and kindness. Please read Guidelines for Volunteers  and watch the following video to familiarize yourself with our expectations of volunteers. This is required before joining us to volunteer.  Thank you!
