AMA Food Pantry is staffed entirely by Volunteers. More than 100 active Volunteers donated more than 3,500 hours of service in 2019. Volunteers purchase food items, stock Food Pantry shelves, fill Client food orders and interface with Clients. Additional Volunteers are needed and always welcome.
Donations of food and financial gifts enable the AMA Food Pantry to distribute life’s essentials to those in need.
Since the AMA Food Pantry has no paid employees, nearly all the financial gifts are used to purchase the food needed for distribution.
