Stockers - Loaves & Fishes Pantry, FRONT ROYAL, VA
Stocking shelves at a food pantry is perhaps one of the happiest volunteer opportunities we have, because it means abundance. Volunteers are needed especially on Wednesdays, both in the morning and the afternoon. But we receive a grocery delivery every afternoon that must be weighed and put away, so the opportunities for this happy task abound!
