There are several opportunities for volunteers at the Cedar Hill Food Pantry. Our goal is to match you with jobs that you will enjoy the most.  Opportunities include assisting with food distribution and/or stocking.  The following is information about the various activities that take place at the pantry on a weekly basis.

Distribution/Application Days

Monday and Wednesday    1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Friday                                     9:00 a.m. - noon

Saturday                                 9:00 a.m. - noon

On these days we are open for clients to come in and get their food or to apply for assistance. Volunteers are needed to get the shelves ready for distribution, greet clients, assist in filling the food baskets, and assist the clients to their car, if needed.  

Stocking Days

Each week the Food Pantry receives food from the North Texas Food Bank, area grocers and through generous donations from within our community.  These items are stocked by employees and volunteers each morning Monday through Friday to be prepared for those coming in for food assistance. The times vary with the amount of food that needs to be put on the shelves.

Self Selection

The Food Pantry began having clients "self-select" so they could choose what their families would eat and allow for dietary restrictions.  This eliminated the need for hundreds of “units” of food having to be put in plastic bags for distribution but there continues to be a need for some units for emergency food distribution.

Holiday meal distribution at Thanksgiving and Christmas requires additional volunteer help.

Special events such as Fashion with Flair, Taste of Cedar Hill and Country Day on the Hill as well as other community events also require volunteers. There is always something meaningful to do at Cedar Hill Shares.

Thanks for sharing your time!

We first met Kaylyn when she was 5 years
old. She found $10 and told mom she
wanted to buy food for the people that didn't have any. Since then she has given $1 a week out of her $5 allowance. In January she and her mom signed up to be regular volunteers at the Pantry.Way to go Kaylyn! 

Betty Gohman has been a volunteer over 18 years.Thanks to the youth from Mission Cedar Hill who cleaned up the outside of the building.
