OUR TEAMMATES

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world.

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

~Margaret Meade

 

 

Volunteers

Volunteers are the heartbeat of our program.   We welcome volunteers from the community, neighboring churches, organizations, corporations, scouts, youth groups, students, and  St. John Lutheran Church members. 

 

Volunteers run all facets of the program and are responsible for everything including ordering, receiving, distribution, stocking, pick up, set up, clean up, scheduling, website, registration, cleaning, sanitizing, organizing food drives, special events, communications, etc.

 

Volunteers make up all of the food pantry teams.
