Volunteer Opportunities

We are always looking for volunteers to help in many ways. Are you a member of a civic organization that might not know about us? Do you have a particular skill that you would like to share?  Fundraising? Community Organizing? Graphic Design? Contact us about organizing your own fundraiser (like a neighborhood collection or community group collection) or helping us out with ours. We will try our best to match your skills and availability with our needs.

People interested in volunteering can fill out the PDF Application or submit the application online. These can be forwarded to the Executive Director, April Duquette, aduquette@cheshirefoodpantry.org. New volunteers are required to attend a brief orientation. Volunteers must be over 18 years of age and be able to life 25 lbs. We do not accept volunteer applications for Court Ordered Community Service.

The Cheshire Community Food Pantry, Inc. has been able to meet the needs of the community because of the generosity of its donors and volunteers. Thank you
