Volunteers

Are you interested in giving back to your community?

We welcome you to volunteer with the Pantry!

Call (970)641-4156 or email GunnisonCountryFoodPantry@gmail.com to set up an interview.

The Pantry offers many fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities, and is a great opportunity to meet new people in your community.

Longtime volunteers, Judy Barry and Sharon Cave

We offer three ways to volunteer:

1) Working with Pantry Recipients — For this position, we are looking for individuals with a kind, patient demeanor and the ability to make people comfortable. This person deals directly with the public.

2) Pantry support — We are looking for individuals who can pick up donations, take inventory and stock the Pantry.  This person keeps up with the quick turnaround of items in the Pantry, and keeps the Pantry organized and looking its best.

3) Administrative support — We need individuals who can help with our volunteer newsletter, can track statistics, and who are willing to conduct further research about food insecurity.

Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a volunteer. We ask that each interested volunteer come in for three trial shifts to see if the Pantry is a good fit for you. We are looking for long-term volunteers. Many of our current volunteers have been working with us for a year or more.

To find out how you can help:  Call at 970-641-4156, email us at gunnisoncountryfoodpantry@gmail.com, or stop by to visit or receive a tour at 321-C N. Main St. in Gunnison.  Our storefront is located on W. Ohio Avenue off Main Street.
