Volunteer


Be a Part of Change; Be a Part of Food and Shelter

Volunteers are the backbone of our operation and are the only way we accomplish so many things with such a small staff. 

Volunteers help Food and Shelter by cooking, serving and cleaning in our kitchen, helping around the office, taking care of our shelter residents or helping with our community events and fundraisers.

We enjoy the assistance of many church groups, civic groups, businesses and families who come on a regular basis to support our mission.  Some groups show up and work here while others collect items within their circle to fill our free store and pantry.  We also have groups who come for one time projects.

However you want to be involved, whether it is through our food program or shelter assistance, we welcome and appreciate the service. Community volunteers are the secret weapon to our success.

Food and Shelter's NEW CAMPUS

Food and Shelter's NEW CAMPUS


For many years now, it has been apparent our current facility has given all it can give.  We are serving more families than our shelter can sleep, we are feeding more women, men and children than our dining room can seat and our offices are doubled up with caring staff supporting those in need.  

We have a vision for tomorrow that includes an entirely new campus with housing and support services at the quality our residents and guests deserve.  We have purchased 3 acres of land on the Griffin Campus just South of Main Street.  As you can see, our campus will be a beautiful green space with an office center, day shelter, soup kitchen and a village of cottages for shelter.  It is a dream come true.  We need your help to make our dream a reality.

We are so close to achieving our fundraising goal and can still use your help.  Please consider supporting our capital campaign by making a gift today.  www.foodandshelterinc.org/donate  Please indicate new campus in your notes.  For additional information about this project, contact April Heiple at (405) 360-4954.
