We need volunteers to help provide low-income, seniors, disabled, homeless, and at risk people in the community with weekly supplemental food grocery assistance. Ritter Center on average feeds 350 people per week at our food pantry.
• Help put away the daily pantry order
• Assist in stocking shelves, bagging up bulk fruits and vegetables, and breaking down materials
• Help with the distribution of pantry food directly to clients
An orientation is required, and training will be provided. Volunteers will gain experience in helping run a community food pantry as well as in working with many diverse people in the community. In addition, volunteers will learn the value of working as a team to meet a common goal of providing needed food to the community.
Working in the food pantry requires casual dress. Usually, jeans and a t-shirt are best. It is safer to wear closed toes shoes, since things may get dropped in transit.
