Volunteer Opportunities

There are a variety of volunteer opportunities at Shepherd’s Pantry. We currently have more than 150 volunteers who participate in our program in different areas. If you have a desire to serve others and would like to explore the possibility of joining our volunteer team, please click on “Shepherd’s Pantry Volunteer Opportunities” to gain a better understanding of what is available. Then click on “Shepherd’s Pantry Volunteer Application”, fill it out and email it to info@shepherdspantry.com or mail to Shepherd’s Pantry, 657 E. Arrow Hwy, Unit J, Glendora, CA 91740.

Volunteers at Shepherd’s Pantry are expected to make at least a 6-month commitment and be 18 years of age or older. From time to time we are –on a very limited basis--able to accommodate high school students who need community service hours to graduate. To inquire about that please email ccerro@shepherdspantry.com.

Although we would love to be able to accommodate children and parents who want to volunteer out of a spirit of giving to their community, we are unable to do this on any kind of a regular basis because of the way we distribute our food. We do have special events throughout the year when we can have families volunteer on a one-time basis.

We welcome Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, Elementary Schools, High Schools, and College organizations to partner with us in organizing food drives as a way of volunteering their time and service.

Client Admissions:

Welcome clients as they enter the facility; instruct clients regarding paperwork requirements; maintain client files. Our client admissions volunteers are the first contact clients have with Shepherd's Pantry so it is important to have a warm and welcoming personality.

Food Handlers:

On a weekly basis, assemble family food boxes and grocery bags for distribution; restock food shelves; help load/unload food truck. During the hours we are open to the public, fill client food orders and transport to their vehicle.
