VOLUNTEER AT TABLE OF HOPE

Table of Hope is one of the largest food pantries in the Wichita Metro Area providing food staples to more than 1,000 people and more than 400 pets each week. Between 25-50 people volunteer at different times throughout the week. Without the help of volunteers our pantry could not exist.

Since the beginning of the pandemic in March of 2020 we have seen a dramatic increase of new clients. At the same time, our volunteer staff is shrinking. With the start of school in September of 2020 we are losing several of our most able-bodied volunteers and so we are in desperate need of additional help.
