VOLUNTEER INFORMATION

Dublin Food Pantry Volunteers are ESSENTIAL
 

In-Pantry volunteers, wearing masks and following extra safety protocols, are a BIG reason that DFP was able to meet the increased need throughout 2020 and into 2021. Outside-of Pantry Volunteers continue to help DFP collect groceries to help stock the pantry. No wonder we think our volunteers are AWESOME!
