There are lots of ways you can volunteer with us! First you must attend a Volunteer Orientation. Orientations are held on the 4th Saturday of each month, from 11:30 sharp until 12:00 noon. Please let us know in advance if you are coming by emailing joycommunitykitchen@gmail.com.

Volunteer Positions:

  • Friday, 10-11:30am:
    Age 15 and older – Serve clients in the food pantry
  • Saturday, 10-11:30am:
    Age 15 and older – Serve clients in the food pantry
  • Tuesday, 5-6:30pm:

Any day, Any age – Prayer Partners
Our pantry Welcome Form has an optional space for prayer requests. A lot of clients fill them in. We need people to pray for these requests throughout the week. (Requests are always anonymous.)

There are other jobs also available during the week, such as unloading or shelving stock. These needs vary. Would you like to be on a shortlist of people to call when we have unexpected needs? (Example: someone just donated 500 lbs. of food and we need volunteers to sort through and shelve it.) If so, please contact us at joycommunitykitchen.org or joycommunitykitchen@gmail.com.

Finally, we always need people to organize and sponsor canned food drives at their places of play, learning, worship, or business.

Thanks so much for your help!
