Volunteer

We appreciate your willingness to volunteer to help us feed hungry people in our community! We are one of the state’s largest food pantries — so we can always use a helping hand. We have a small team of employees and truly count on the generosity of people like you who want to volunteer to end hunger in our community.

Our volunteers are incredible!

More New Mexicans have relied on food pantries since the pandemic, and nonprofits like the Storehouse need ongoing volunteer help to support the work of feeding people in need.

At the Storehouse, one of our wonderful volunteers has done just that, showing up nearly every week for many years to help feed New Mexicans.

“She’s super dedicated to the Storehouse and our mission of feeding those in need in our community,” said Kevin Cochran Storehouse New Mexico operations manager. 

We nominated her for some recognition through KOB-TV’s Pay it Forward segment and she won! Congrats Juanita!

Volunteer

Volunteers help the Storehouse in many ways. Assisting families, re-packing bulk items into smaller portions, or sorting donations are all regular tasks we ask volunteers to do. If you have a particular skill you’d like to share, be sure to let us know. We welcome both regular and one-time volunteers. Please scroll down for more information on how to sign up. 

We are currently limiting the number of volunteers in the pantry due COVID-19 restrictions. See COVID-19 statement above.

Individuals

Everyone should sign up through our volunteer application form. During the pandemic, please call, and we will schedule specific times for you to volunteer. Everyone must sign a volunteer waiver to work at the pantry. We are not currently accepting youth volunteers, but for people 17 and under, a parent must sign on your behalf. 

 

Location and Parking

Our fixed pantry site is located in downtown Albuquerque at 106 Broadway Blvd SE, in downtown Albuquerque (just south of Central). We have limited parking in our lot, so please plan to park along side streets nearby. Please do NOT park in the lot across the street or at Standard Diner as you might end up being towed.
