The Norwood Food Pantry is run 100% by volunteers!
We welcome all types of volunteers-drivers, stockers, helpers, cleanup. Please fill out our application below to indicate your areas of interest and availability.
Saturday Morning Volunteers
Saturday volunteers commit to working one Saturday a month. Help is needed for the following volunteer positions:
- Adults to escort clients through the pantry to shop 7:55-11 am
- Youth volunteers (age 12 and above) to help clients carry bags 8-11 am
- Pre-shopping set up 6:45-8 am
- Post-shopping clean up 10:30-11:15am
We need volunteers throughout the week to sort food, stock shelves in the warehouse and pantry and help prepare the pantry for “shoppers” on Saturday mornings. Stocking and sorting volunteers must be able to lift 50lbs.
The Pantry depends on volunteers to pick up food from local stores and also to help deliver food to the homes of clients with disabilities. In addition, we also distribute food to other community pantry organizations based on need.
