The Cheshire Community Food Pantry, Inc. receives many requests for children & teenagers to participate volunteers with us. Checkout this document we created for children to give back to the pantry. Below please see a list of volunteer opportunities for anyone under the age of 18. If you and your child are interested in any of the below please contact,

  • Local Neighborhood Food Drive – Target an item of your choice, age group or call the pantry for what we currently need! Here are some ideas:
    • Kids snacks, drinks, or favorites
    • Band-Aids – fun & wacky ones for kids or adults to use!
    • Paper goods – Toilet Paper, Paper Towels, Napkins
    • Gather items for our back to school drive or birthday program
  • Request Food & Monetary Donations instead of birthday or holiday gifts.
  • Hold a fundraiser through baking, lemonade, or car wash
  • Draw pictures or kind notes for our families
  • Plant a garden in your yard and donate harvest to the pantry
  • Host a tag sale and donate proceeds to the pantry

We can also provide tours and site visits for children interested in learning more about the food pantry. If you manage a local group of children and would like to have a tour or work on a community service project please contact,
