Volunteering at the Food Pantry
The Larchmont Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force is looking for individuals to work
at the Food Pantry on an ongoing or occasional basis. We need your help, but it is important that you contact us before you come! Due to limited space we can only accept a certain number of volunteers at a time. See the different job descriptions below and use the contact information listed if you are interested. Be sure to check our Calendar for the dates when the Pantry is operating.
In addition to volunteering at the Food Pantry on either Tuesday or Wednesday,
the Mobile Food Pantry and the Fresh Market produce distribution offer the opportunity to volunteer on Saturdays. These events are also an ideal way for parents and their kids to perform community service together. For more information, scroll down to the bottom of this page. Important: If you would like to volunteer, please sign up in advance.
