Volunteer support is essential to the successful operation of the food pantry. OHI and the Brewer Area Food Pantry are committed to the belief that involving volunteers in its operations is a necessity for carrying out its mission of providing food for those who are food insecure in Brewer and Eddington, Maine. People from diverse backgrounds come to sort and inspect donations, stock shelves, pick up donated goods and equipment, or pack food for people in need.
Corporations, school groups, community groups, Scouts, and more, if you have a group that would like to volunteer, we have an opportunity for you! Use your time volunteering to fulfill community service requirements for court-ordered service, school, or SNAP benefit requirements.
