Our church-wide food drive is on the first weekend of every month at both campuses. Food is collected before and after each service in the lobby. Suggested items are cereal, granola bars, pancake mix, soups, packaged dinners, peanut butter, jelly, canned meats, veggies, and beans or fruit. If you are interested in donating food items, one of the easiest ways you can assemble your donation is buying extra food when you do your regular grocery shopping.

Food Drive Collection
We are looking to add more volunteers to help with our Monthly Food Drive! As the Food Pantry continues to grow, we need help keeping it organized and well stocked. We are looking for volunteers to help during each service on Food Drive Weekends to man the collection table, bring food to the pantry, and to sort/stock at the pantry. It’s a great way to serve as a family or small group once a month at church!
We hope to have 2 to 5 people during each service and it only takes 30 to 45 minutes! We ask that volunteers arrive 10 minutes before each service but once the food is sorted and stocked, you're free to go. If you, your family, or your small group are interested in volunteering, click the link below.
There is no specific volunteering frequency commitment.
Food Pantry Assistance
In addition to food contributions, volunteer assistance is vital to the operations of the Hope in Action Food Pantry. As a result, we need volunteers to help with the prep nights the Thursday before the distribution from 5pm-7pm. During this time, volunteers bring food from the Hope in Action Building to the lobby and set-up tables, chairs, and signs. We need 15-18 volunteers each month for the prep night.
Distributions are the 2nd Friday of every month and we ask our volunteers to arrive no later than 5:30pm. We need 18-20 volunteers at each distribution. The distribution ends no earlier than 7pm. Afterward, volunteers are asked to set and help with clean up and tear down. Below are the different volunteer positions available at each distribution:
- Check-in desk
- Guest Host: greeting guests and walking them through the choice items area
- Packed food station: carrying the pre-packed food to guests' cars (must be able to lift at least 30 lbs)
- Set-up/tear down
Volunteers are asked to wear closed toed shoes at all times. If you are interested in volunteering with the Hope in Action Food Pantry, follow the link below.
