The Branch Area Food Pantry is 100% staffed by volunteers who donated over 5,000 hours in the first 6 months of 2022.
Volunteer Opportunities--Note: volunteer opportunities have changed due to the pandemic. At this time we are forced to limit the number of volunteers at the site. If you are interested in joining our team, contact Kim at the Pantry. 517-279-0966.
Mondays mornings only: Receiving, sorting, storing food coming in from community sources.
Tuesdays: Helping clients, restocking shelves, computer data entry.
Special events: Sorting food received from food drives, helping with fundraising events, holiday distribution, gleaning fields and more.
Volunteers work as much as they choose, from a few hours a month to many hours every week.
Volunteers complete an attached application or apply in person at the Pantry, Monday AM or Tuesdays, to match their interests and skills with Pantry needs.
