Volunteer at StreetWise Mobile Food Pantry Registration

Volunteer Opportunity! StreetWise Mobile Food Pantry!

Be a part of the helping hands to those families in need!  StreetWise Georgia & The Atlanta Community Food Bank partner every month to provide pre-registered families with approximately 100 lbs. of food.  Registered guests never have to get out of their vehicles. Guests drive through our parking lot, where StreetWise Ambassadors & Volunteers load their cars with boxes of food.

StreetWise Mobile Food Pantry is on the second Saturday of each month, and we pre-pack the food boxes on Friday, the day before. StreetWise is conveniently located off Hwy 316 next to the Gwinnett County Airport. You can also take Hwy 316 to Winder Hwy NE (Hwy 29) to Cedars Road.

Volunteers will arrive by 9:00 A.M. at the StreetWise facility for Friday Pack. The boxes are packed via an assembly line, and we will fill approximately 300+ boxes with produce, meat, bread, and dry goods.  We should be done by 11:30 A.M.

Saturday, StreetWise Mobile Food Pantry

Volunteers can expect to be outside during most of the event. You will help sort food, prepare food boxes, and load the food boxes into client vehicles. Also, help registered guest’s check-in, direct traffic, hand out StreetWise flyers, and so much more. We can find a place for you!

Volunteers arrive by 9:00 A.M., and we will set up for the Mobile Food Pantry, then at 9:30 A.M. begin to serve over 270+ registered families. With everyone pitching in, clean-up is a snap, and Volunteers are done by 1:00 P.M. You must have your own transportation. Volunteers under the age of 18 without transportation should not be dropped off.

Please wear comfortable clothing, tennis shoes preferred (no open-toed shoes), no earbuds or headphones for safety reasons, and leave personal belongings in the car or at home. We serve rain or shine, heat or cold, and sometimes in the snow! Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately to be outside. We can’t guarantee the weather, but we can guarantee smiles and laughter all around!
