Looking for a way to help out? Want meaningful involvement? Become a volunteer at The Shelburne Food Shelf! The Food Shelf is entirely run by volunteers and there are a variety of ways that you can get involved!
Here are our current volunteer opportunities:

- Food Shopping: Hannaford/Costco food shopping (prior to Tuesday distributions).
- Home Delivery Volunteers: Deliver (usually 4 - 8 families) packed bags of food to families unable to get to Shelburne Food Shelf on Thursday morning of the shopping week.
- Food Bank Delivery and Stocking: Assist in unpacking and stocking shelves from the monthly Food Bank delivery. Second Tuesday of the month; 8 am to 10 am.
