with us!

Volunteers are critical to every aspect of our operation, providing hundreds hours of collective time every month. Thank you for your interest in joining our mission to end local hunger!

Many ways to help

Moving Truck

Pick-up / Deliveries

We reclaim perishable foods that still have 4-5 days of viability from local retailers. 

Drivers must be 21 years old, have a valid IL drivers license, and be able to lift cases weighing up to 50 lb.


Client Service

On distribution day, serve along side dedicated volunteers to help ensure the pantry is running smoothly so that clients get the food and service they serve.



The BWFP has a continuous flow of food items that must be sorted, processed, and stocked in preparation for client shopping.

You must be able to stand and walk for an extended period of time. Some lifting may be required.
