Youth Volunteers

Due to the confidential nature of those we serve and our hours of operation, the Pantry has limited opportunities for youth volunteers.

FFP Youth Volunteer Policy:

All Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age to volunteer at the Pantry.  Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer in a client services role.  Please note:  Volunteer opportunities for those under 18 are typically seasonal (summer) and are limited in availability.

At times, the Pantry will hold volunteer events onsite that are open to children under the age of 16. All children under of the age of 16 must be supervised by a parent. When those events take place, we will post them on the Pantry website and publicize on social media.
