Dublin Food Pantry
The Dublin Food Pantry is a volunteer organization that is totally responsible for the operation of
the Pantry! It is a
choice pantry set-up like a grocery store so clients can shop and select
the food they want. It takes approximately 150 volunteers each week to operate the Pantry and an
additional 500+ volunteers to run the major food drives and the holiday
Harvest of Hope food
distribution. It is because of the efforts of our volunteers that the Pantry mission of making sure
that our Dublin neighbors do not go hungry is realized!
If you would like to volunteer please contact the appropriate Volunteer Coordinator listed below. All volunteers must be scheduled through a Volunteer Coordinator. A minimum of one week advance notice is needed to schedule volunteers. A Volunteer Coordinator will work with you to find an opportunity you enjoy. Thank you for you for volunteering at the Pantry!
