Volunteer at these Denton County Area Food Pantries & Soup Kitchens
The need for volunteers is always great at community organizations like food pantries and soup kitchens. Consider volunteering at these organizations located within Denton County.
109 W Sycamore St, Denton, TX 76201
Denton's Community Food Center is 100% dependent on volunteers. The majority of their work (sacking groceries, sorting food, stocking shelves, and serving clients) occurs during normal operating hours which are Monday-Friday from 1:00-3:00pm. But there are some limited volunteer opportunities (like unloading the Food Bank truck every Monday at 7:30am) that happen outside normal "work hours."
They'd love to bring on more volunteers who can volunteer on a regular basis, but do also accept short-term volunteers on an as-needed and first-come-first-accepted basis. And due to their limited space, they can only accommodate a total of 8-10 volunteers per shift.
Contact their Volunteer Coordinator for opportunities and more details.
