Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We are currently in higher need of volunteers in the following roles:

  • Stocker
  • Flexiteer

Volunteers in these roles must be able to lift and carry items up to 30lbs (approx.) and will need to be comfortable with stairs.

The flexiteer is new for 2022! We are introducing a different way to volunteer. You get to select a day or two a month that you will be on-call as a back-up for any of our roles (vary from things like bag packing, stocking, or client services) during our normal business hours. We have different needs on different days of the week, so we can accommodate certain interests, but you will be cross-trained to cover multiple roles. This is an exciting new program for us, and we look forward to building out this role with new volunteers!

Please fill out our volunteer form and we will be in touch shortly to arrange an orientation.

We count on a core group of more than 70 volunteers who are involved in the daily operations of the Pantry. They work directly with our neighbors, pick up food from local grocers and farms and deliver it to the Pantry, stock and organize shelves, and assist with the Mobile Pantry. This group is essential to the ongoing operations of the Pantry and usually requires a daily, weekly or monthly commitment.

Community service hours are limited in availability.  Please visit here for our volunteer handbook. Please keep an eye on this page and our Facebook page and we will post when we have opportunities. If you have any questions, please reach out to our volunteer coordinator: Kayla Sines at ksines@franklinfoodpantry.org.

Thank you. 

If you are interested in helping out at the Franklin community gardens please contact: communitygardens@franklinfoodpantry.org.

Meet some of the many volunteers we count on.

The Pantry follows the Town of Franklin schedule during times of extreme weather conditions. If Franklin public schools close for hazardous weather, the Pantry will be closed.  All volunteer shifts are canceled. If Franklin Public Schools have a delayed opening, FFP will have the same delayed opening. Volunteers will be contacted individually with directions on their particular shift.

Please check our homepage or our Facebook page for specific updates on the day of a potential weather event. Thank you for your understanding.
