The Wakefield Food Pantry depends on many volunteers. Currently, a dedicated group of volunteers, from guest support to Board of Directors, keeps the pantry running on a day to day basis. But, there are countless other volunteers that are instrumental in bringing in food and funds on an ad-hoc basis through the many food drives and fundraising events in our community. The best way to find out about our volunteer opportunities is to sign up for our newsletter here: Newsletter

For those under the age of 18 please note that while we truly appreciate your interest, if you are under 18 and/or have not graduated from HS yet, for confidentiality reasons, you cannot be in the pantry during guest hours. Please sign up for our community newsletter below. When we do have special events that can include persons under the age of 18, we highlight it in our newsletter and if it is something you are interested in and available for, please respond. Also check out our “Kids Activities” tab (hover over “Volunteer” on our Home page) to find more ideas on helping the food pantry.

Below are Volunteer positions that we are looking to fill. Some of the positions may only require a few hours a year while other positions may require 10-12 hours per month. Click on the job title to see a short description. If you are interested in any positions, please complete the volunteer application at the bottom of this page. Our volunteer coordinator will get back to you shortly.
