Volunteers

Are you interested in giving back to the community? We offer many fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities. It is also a great opportunity to meet new people in your community.

We offer three ways to volunteer. The first is direct contact with community members who need assistance.  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.

You can also help in 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.

We are also looking for 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.

GCFP is run entirely by volunteers.  Find out how you can help.  Call or text us at 970-641-4156 or email us at gunnisoncountryfoodpantry@gmail.com.  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.
