Who Can Help

Students

If you’re a high school student, serving at Families Matter Food Pantry is an amazing opportunity. Not can you earn community service hours, but you’ll also gain a greater appreciation for serving and giving back to your community. Come join us to get some real-world experience.

Individuals & Families

Serving by yourself? Don’t hesitate to join us! You’ll make new connections and feel right at home with our friendly volunteer team. Want to bring your whole family? Go right ahead! Not only will it bring you together, but it’s also a great way to teach your kids about the importance of helping others.

Groups & Organizations

We love it when organizations and corporate groups volunteer. Serving together is an excellent team-building experience, makes it easy for your company to give back to the community, and leaves your team members positively impacted. We also love that it allows our regular volunteers to rest.
