Volunteers are invaluable at the Pantry

The Dublin Food Pantry gratefully relies on hundreds of volunteers. It is a choice pantry, so our volunteers help create a grocery store type of setting, allowing clients to shop and select the food and personal care items they need. It takes teams of volunteers each week to operate the Pantry and hundreds of volunteers to help sort and distribute the collected food and personal care items throughout the year. We also appreciate the volunteer efforts of those who conduct food drives for the DFP. Thank you for helping to ensure your Dublin neighbors don't go hungry!
