FamilyCore Monthly Food Pantry

Each month, we team up with Midwest Food Bank to bring supplemental food to FamilyCore families!

We rely greatly on volunteers to help sort and load the food so our workers can take them out to the families in need.

We recommend that volunteers are able to lift at least 20lbs. If you would like to help, but cannot make it to the Food Pantry, consider donating paper or reusable bags to transport the goods.

Volunteer Positions include:   

– Pick up/load

– Unload/Sort 

– Load into staff/client vehicles   

If you would like more information, please contact Veronica Stalter at vstalter@familycore.org.

Our next Food Pantry Date is: Wednesday, January 15, 2020
