Volunteers

If you would like to volunteer at the Vandalia Butler Food Pantry, we have several options available for you. Please contact the pantry via email: director@vbfoodpantry.com

We need the following positions filled:

Appointment Setter – this position entails gathering the incoming messages for the food pantry and calling the clients to schedule their food pickups based on the schedule of the volunteers for that month. The messages are delivered directly to your email account so you can listen and make the calls from the comfort of your own home. We need 12 people (1 to handle each month) or fewer if some people are willing to handle more than 1 month. It takes less than 1 hour per day to make the calls/schedule the clients. People volunteering for this should be comfortable using email (to communicate with the volunteer leaders) and phones (to call the clients).

Shelf Stocking – this position is working with our existing shelf stocking crew (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) between 9am and 11am to learn the shelf stocking and inventory stocking system at the Pantry. We would like to have a couple extra hands to help out at the pantry. This is an excellent opportunity for retired people to contribute to the community. We are looking to bolster our ranks during the Monday/Wednesday/Friday time slots as well as create a Saturday slot with younger working volunteers who want to give back to the community.
