The Pantry Plus More is a non-profit organization that operates free school pantries, food giveaways, and health and wellness programs across Monongalia County.
Since 2016, we have…
As an all-volunteer organization, The Pantry Plus More is always looking for passionate people to help our mission. There are multiple ways to get involved:
A partnership with Mountaineer Food Bank, this food giveaway distributes more than 12,000 lbs of foods to people in need. These monthly, Saturday morning events typically require 60 volunteers who are capable of lifting 40-lb food boxes and are committed to staying for the entire 4-hour event.
This program provides 8,000 lbs of fresh food to families in need every month. 10-15 volunteers are needed for these events, which occur at 8:30 a.m. on the second Thursday of every month.
Our in-school pantries operate in partnership with volunteer school representatives, who are liaisons between between the schools and The Pantry Plus More. The hands-on training for these selective volunteer positions typically lasts six months. In addition, we also need 5-15 volunteers to help with our weekly inventory checks, which take place on weekends.
The Pantry Plus More is proud to operate with some of the best efficiency in our sector. As a volunteer organization, 87% of your tax-deductible donation is allocated to our programs that provide nutrition, hygiene, and school supplies to children and families in need, with a small portion of donations supporting our operating costs.
