Volunteering is good for the heart and the soul and it is truly amazing what we can accomplish together. Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience – just ask any of our many volunteers who willingly serve daily with compassion and love. As a volunteer you will be serving the community by extending a helping hand, providing food, support, love and acceptance for those in difficult circumstances. The Bountiful Food Pantry depends on the generosity of a volunteer work force every day and for special projects. You can volunteer as an individual, a family, or part of a group on an occasional or regular basis. There are many ways to serve ranging from an extra set of hands, to Spanish-speaking assistance, to skilled labor, to professional services. We are more than just a food bank. Together we build a stronger community with each interaction.
Each person can make a great difference…
