We would not be able to fulfill our mission without the time and dedication of our extraordinary volunteers. Each year, the operation of the pantry requires more than 8,000 hours of work contributed by our devoted volunteers.
Our goal is to provide interested groups and individuals with the best volunteer experience possible. We also strive to prepare our volunteers to become hunger advocates in our community. Fighting hunger does not always start with a meal. At CORA, it starts with those who selflessly offer their time and talent. CORA’s volunteer opportunities include stocking shelves, helping families shop, organizing food drives, and even helping with one of our exciting fundraising events. Whether you are an individual or part of a group or company, there are many customizable opportunities to volunteer and we welcome you!
We have a minimum age requirement of 18 years old to volunteer here at CORA. However, there are many opportunities for children under the age of 16 to be involved with our work in the community. Check out our Youth Volunteer Opportunities or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have volunteer orientations every Thursday of the month from 3 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. to introduce individuals to our organization and to learn more about specific opportunities. To register for orientation, contact us at Meredith@corafoodpantry.org. At orientation, you will receive a tour of the pantry and learn about the work we do at CORA. You will also register with Volunteer Hub, our online volunteer scheduling and information system. Following orientation, you will be able to sign up for shifts that fit your schedule.
