Patchwork Pantry is 100% volunteer run. Volunteers are the backbone of our organization! Without them and their dedication to serving members of their community, we would not be able to serve our neighbors as efficiently as we do. 


Each week it takes about 30 people to operate Patchwork Pantry. Dedicated volunteers help order the food and keep track of inventory, set up the food for distribution, pack produce and grocery bags, interview the clients, enter information in the database, bring food to client's cars, and more!
