Volunteers: An integral part to the Fresh Food Farmacy

Our program's success can be attributed to the many tasks volunteers perform. Volunteers are needed during operating hours, which are Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tasks volunteers can assit with include:

  • Greeting staff and patients as they enter the Farmacy
  • Answering phone calls and directing traffic through the Farmacy
  • Engaging with our patients to provide a positive and motivating experience
  • Unloading deliveries received by the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank
  • Receiving food orders and packing patient grocery bags
  • Stocking and sorting shelves
  • Lifting requirement is approximately 20 pounds


“I like to see the folks baking, cooking and eating things they have never had before. The people are proud and happy. What a good thing!” -- Jo Ann Murphy, Fresh Food Farmacy volunteer.
