Without volunteers, Carolina Cupboard will not be able to effectively provide food to the people in need in our community. As a food pantry, we will rely heavily on volunteers and donations. There are many ways that people in and outside of the Carolina community can help support CC in our mission to fight food poverty.

Below are our current opportunities:

Apply to be a Executive Board Member: The executive members work closely together to come up with overarching aims and goals for
the year, but on a whole, we strive to educate, empower, and engage others on social justice
issues relating to food poverty and food insecurity.

Apply to be a Shift LeaderShift leaders are the members of Carolina Cupboard and in many ways serve as ambassadors of the organization.

Apply to be a Volunteer: During the academic year, we accept a small number of applications for volunteers. Volunteers assist with pantry operations, have the opportunity to volunteer at fundraising events and other events hosted by Carolina Cupboard.

Food Sorting: Food sorting, packaging, and distribution at the food pantry are the best ways to volunteer when we anticipate large donations. These activities are perfect for larger groups, if your group or organization would like to volunteer please email

Host a Food Drive: Organizing food drives in your residence halls, clubs, organizations, or even local churches is a great way to help those in need in our community. If you would like to host a food drive or have any questions or concerns regarding the logistics, please email us at
