Interlaken Food Pantry Need Volunteers
Interlaken Reformed Church Kitchen Cupboard is looking for volunteers to assist with the administration of the food pantry that runs weekly. We are in need of someone with computer access and skills to help with ordering the food bi-weekly- We need help in grant writing- helping with basic organizational items- brainstorming what we could be more efficiently. There are about 100 families coming though the pantry weekly which is an increase for us. We are looking for help to lighten the load as well as looking for new ideas on how to improve this operation. If you have a passion for seeing that the hungry in the South Seneca area are getting their needs met, please assist us by contacting our secretary at 532-4321 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
