Volunteering

All Back Door Food Pantry operations are run by volunteers.   The range of tasks include helping to stock the shelves,  preparing inventories, opening and closing the pantry and of course helping to distribute food.

During the pandemic, the pantry itself can not be occupied, so contact-free food distribution occurs outside the Genesis Social Hall on the sidewalk next to the circle drive where cars wait to register with volunteers.  Each week volunteers do the following:
