Volunteer Orientation

Prior to volunteering, all prospective volunteers must complete a new volunteer form and attend a Volunteer Orientation.  During this orientation, you will receive an overview of our mission, values, shifts, and how to sign up to volunteer.  Once you have completed the orientation, you will become an 'active' volunteer. 

Orientations are held the 3rd Wednesday of the Month (well, most of them) at 7pm, and during the summer, the 3rd Monday of the Month at 3pm. During December we have weekly orientations on Thursday at 3pm. 

Orientations take place in the lower level of 848 Lake Street, Oak Park, IL 60301 (First United Church of Oak Park).  Enter through the parking lot at the rear of the church on Kenilworth Ave.  Follow the signs down the stairs to the Food Pantry.  

Check our event page for upcoming orientation dates.
