I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.

Over 25 volunteers are needed each week to operate the pantry.  Volunteers include our faith-based partners, community partners, local businesses, law offices, schools, scouts, and individuals. 

Everyone can make a difference!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Hope.  We distribute groceries to families every Thursday, Friday, and first Saturday of the month. Saturday distribution is reserved for our partners. 

See below for the general volunteer schedule.

Tuesdays 1:30 – 4p.m. Prepping and stocking involves sorting dry goods and fresh produce in preparation for Thursday/Friday/Saturday distribution.

Thursday and Friday 8 – 11a.m.  Bag the groceries and give them to the family. This can involve limited interaction with a family member as they pick up groceries.

Other needs:

  • Food Pick/Delivery using your own vehicle 
  • Volunteer Team Leads to coordinate different aspects of the process

Please email Stephanie at info@hopefoodpantryaustin.org to get started.
