The Canal Alliance Food Pantry and Open Market offers fresh produce and packaged foods for hundreds of families in the Canal neighborhood each Tuesday. Each week, volunteers provide support in unloading food from trucks, stocking shelves, interacting with clients and handing out food in the walk-through system, and clean up and take down of the Open Market as it closes. This is a great opportunity for individuals, families and volunteer groups to interact with the individuals and families that Canal Alliance serves. Safe food handling principles will be provided by Canal Alliance staff.



Volunteers must be 16 or older.

If under 18, you must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.


Tuesday mornings starting from 8:00 am to 11:00 am.

Must be able to commit to a minimum of one month (4 weeks).
