All volunteers are welcome to join us in the Backpack Buddies Pantry at Galilee Church to pack 445 bags a week. No sign up is necessary. Please enter the building through the 4 glass doors facing Winding Road. Take the hallway to the right of the sanctuary and follow the signs to the pantry. If you are bringing more than 4 people to this packing please email us.

2nd weeks of the month:

Volunteer teams can sign up to pack at their convenience, between Friday-Sunday, in the pantry. Please click here for more information and to sign up.

You can still support the Backpack Buddies program from home! 

Individuals, families, groups, and corporation can join us in solving the hunger issue in our community. Community food drives and collections, assembling meal packs at home, or financial gifts are all great ways to continue to support the program during this socially-distanced time.
