Volunteer Your Time
Loving Food Resources is a volunteer-driven food pantry. Volunteers are at the heart and soul of LFR. They help our clients while enjoying the company of like-minded friends.
Some volunteer roles include:
- Sorting and shelving products to be ready for clients
- Being available to help with product selection on Saturday during operating hours
- Driving clients to their homes after shopping on Saturdays between the hours of 10:00AM-1:00PM. Many clients depend on public transportation to get to LFR, but returning home on the bus with their food is not feasible as a food box can weigh up to 50 lbs. Most clients live within 3 miles of LFR.

Organize a Food Drive
A birthday party, classroom project, church food drive, civic club undertaking, neighborhood endeavor, or company project are all good opportunities to hold a food drive. The Donation Calendar on our website specifies the items we need most. A food drive for LFR can help fill our shelves for clients as well as spread the word about the pantry.
