Dublin Food Pantry values our student volunteers!
Thank you for your interest in helping your neighbors access nutritious food and other essential resources in an atmosphere of compassion, safety, respect, and professionalism.
Dublin Food Pantry (DFP) gratefully relies on volunteers, especially during the COVID-19 Crisis. There is no higher priority for us than your health and physical well-being. We will continue to operate while taking precautionary steps to prevent the spread of illness. We have increased the frequency and depth of cleaning and have made other operational changes as well. To practice safer social distancing, DFP now offers PRE-PACKAGED items to one adult per pick-up instead of volunteer assisted pantry shopping and we are limiting volunteer numbers.
Please do NOT volunteer if:
you have been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19? See the CDC’s risk assessment guidance.
you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19? Symptoms can include a fever, cough or shortness of breath. See the CDC’s symptom information.
Thank you for your cooperation and support! If you have questions, please contact us at
