Volunteer at a Mobile Food Pantry

Asking for help can be the hardest thing folks have to do. We rely on volunteers to ensure our mobile food pantries are welcoming, respectful places for clients to get the help they need.

Volunteer Shifts

Mobile Pantry volunteer shifts are offered in the morning and afternoon, Monday through Saturday. Please review available shift opportunities to register yourself as an individual.

If you would like to register a group, please use our Groups form. For court-appointed volunteer opportunities, please use our Court-Appointed form.

Distributions occur at sites across our 21-county service area, including Austin, Lexington, Bartlett, Lott, Cedar Park, Mustang Ridge, Fredericksburg, San Saba, Johnson City, Uhland and Kosse.

What to Wear and What to Expect

For safety reasons, sleeveless shirts and open-toe shoes are not permitted. Dress comfortably. You’ll be on your feet, moving around. Many of our mobile food pantry distributions take place outdoors, so please dress appropriately for the day’s weather.

In the event of severe weather, please call 512-684-2559 to check your volunteer shift status.
