VOLUNTEER: It’s only a matter of time

The Pantry of Broward is able to function efficiently and effectively thanks to our volunteers and donors. People who volunteer are literally taking the time to care. They share a few hours a week or a month helping us to pack food boxes, make phone calls, delivering food boxes or helping out wherever the need is greatest. Your time is very valuable and we appreciate every minute you can spare to work with us.

Please review some of the volunteer positions listed below and send an email or call us at (954) 358-1481 and we can arrange an interview and put you to work!
