Food Pantry Volunteers

We’re always on the lookout for friendly, motivated people to help provide great customer service and an outstanding experience for our food pantry clients.  Volunteers in the food pantry help with day to day operations including:

  • Sorting food donations
  • Re-stocking shelves and produce carts
  • Assisting clients with their shopping
  • Assisting donors by unloading, weighing, and recording donations
  • Keeping our food areas clean and organized

All our food pantry volunteers need to be familiar with our food safety policies and procedures.

“As I moved to Bristol, I sought out opportunities to volunteer and to meet people in our community. I could not have chosen a better organization than the East Bay Food Pantry. I have had the great fortune of meeting and working with a wonderful group of dedicated, hard-working individuals who epitomize selflessness and decency. My sincere thanks to the Pantry for welcoming me to the community and showing me the true meaning of giving back!”
