Show off your company’s civic leadership by volunteering at the Pantry for a day! Employees can help end hunger in our community while working as a team and collaborating with each other. We welcome groups ranging from 3 to 40 people to volunteer.
Client Service Volunteer Opportunities
During a client service there are several different ways to help: shop the isles with a client, helping them pick out their food, monitoring the fresh produce or bread and pastry sections, load cars, restock shelves, and more.
Client Service Distribution volunteer times are Tuesdays 8:00 – Noon and 1:00 – 4:00, Thursdays 8:00 – Noon and 5:00 – 8:00 pm, and Saturdays 8:00 – Noon.
A suggested sponsorship donation for a client service is $750.
Community Mobile Pantry Volunteer Opportunities
The Community Mobile Pantry is in partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank. The Mobile Pantry travels to three higher need areas once per month, distributing nutritious food at no cost. Our goal is to increase access to those who may not have transportation or who may not want to come forward for help at the Pantry. We currently have mobiles that visit Bolingbrook, Romeoville, and Willowbrook.
Each mobile can have up to 25 volunteers at a time. During the mobile volunteers will help set up, unload the mobile truck register clients, manage the flow of lines, distribute food, help shop and assist people back to their cars. Volunteers are need from 3:45 – 6:15 pm.
A suggested sponsorship donation for mobile pantry is $1,000.
We have behind the scenes Pantry operation projects that are a great way to get a large group in to help! Our dedicated team can help figure out what the best project is for you and your team. It could be stocking shelves, sorting donations, warehouse help, office projects, and more.
These projects are flexible on days and times.
A suggested sponsorship donation for special projects is $500.
