Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry is managed and staffed almost entirely by a dedicated group of volunteers on an ongoing basis.
While there are no available volunteer openings currently, the Food Pantry does often need help with food drives and special events. Such annual events include the U.S. Postal Service Letter Carrier Food Drive and Holiday Gift Basket Drives for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. We send out notifications for these types of volunteer opportunities throughout the year.
To receive these notifications, please subscribe to our blog (on the left sidebar menu). By becoming an email subscriber, you will learn about volunteer opportunities at the food pantry and assist us in planning events.
Additionally, to be considered for future openings, please complete our WIFP Volunteer Questionaire and WIFP Volunteer Release. Print and mail them to the address on the form or e-mail them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry at 781-245-2510 and leave a message for the Volunteer Coordinator.
Even when there are no open positions, having your information in our database will aid us when we need volunteers for special events or newly open volunteer positions.
