Volunteer at the Hub

Pantry Volunteer

It takes many hands to run the Hub Food Pantry! Volunteers assist with a wide range of tasks, including but not limited to: packing boxes, sorting produce, stocking shelves, working the front desk, assisting patrons in the pantry, repackaging bulk goods. Lifting abilities preferred but not required. 

Time Commitment: 2 hours per week, every week

Days and Times: There are pantry shifts open Tuesdays through Thursday, 10am to 6pm

Families are welcome to volunteer together as a group.

All potential new volunteers are required to attend a Volunteer Orientation before volunteering with the Hub. The Orientation's purpose is to allow staff to get to know potential volunteers, address expectations around safety and respect in the pantry, and provide volunteers with more information about what we do and why!

If you are interested in volunteering, please refer to our website calendar for posted orientation times. You don't need to bring anything, but yourself! If you have further questions about volunteering, please contact Sam at operations@mhcfoodpantry.org.

Garden Volunteer

Come help us grow food for the food pantry while learning how to garden organically! Weekly work dates provide a space for gardeners of all abilities and experience levels to enjoy planting, harvesting, weeding, composting, maintenance and more. Tasks vary according to season, as we garden from April through October. Volunteers are welcome to drop in to any of the work dates listed on our Community Garden page; come once or join us the whole season! Kids under 12 are welcome with adult supervision.

Time Commitment: 1-2 hours, once or twice per week

Days and Times: April-October, Tuesdays 4-6 pm in the Hub Garden
 

Composting shifts are available all year long. 

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Sidd at garden@mhcfoodpantry.org.
