OLS Food Pantry

Volunteer at The OLS Food Pantry

Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age and any volunteer under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult volunteer.

High school students wishing to volunteer at the Food Pantry to meet Community Service requirements should contact [email protected] to make arrangements.

The Saturday distribution teams operate outside, so if you're a volunteer, please dress accordingly and arrive by 7:45am.

The purpose of our Satuday "Grab & Go" approach with an earlier start time is to minimize the patron car line. There is no client choice at this time.  

Volunteers must be vaccinated for COVID 19.

If you feel uncomfortable or are unwell, do not come to Pantry. 

THE FOOD DISTRIBUTION DATES FOR 2022 are  listed below. HOURS ARE FROM 8-10AM. We will distribute food packages outside, near the 4th Street doorway with ramp until further notice.

May 14 and 28
June 11 and 25
July 9 and 23
Aug 13 and 27
Sept 10 and 24
Oct 8 and 22
Nov 5 and 19
Dec 3 and 17

If you can't do a shift you've signed up for...PLEASE delete yourself from the Sign Up Genius so you open the shift for another volunteer to take your place. In the case of a last minute cancellation, email us at [email protected]

Thank you so much!
