Open Pantry Volunteers Needed

This time of year we usually have a slight shortage of Open Pantry volunteers. If you’ve been thinking about volunteering or know someone that might want to help, are over 18, able to treat clients with kindness, respect and confidentiality, and want to help people in our local area, have a look at our Volunteer page and contact our volunteer coordinator.
