Youth Opportunities


WayForward Resources is recruiting youth groups, families, teams and organizations to join us in restocking our pantry shelves and building food security in our community.

What do Youth Pantry Partners do?

  • Hold a food drive and bring it to WayForward! 
  • Help us weigh, sort and stock our shelves with what you’ve collected
  • Learn about WayForward and our mission to create food and housing security


Who can participate?

  • Groups of 4-8 people work best
  • For children ages 5-15, we require one adult chaperone for every four children
  • Children under 5 must each have their own adult chaperone

Food drive tips

  • Pick a theme for your food drive to add to the fun! 
  • Theme ideas: breakfast, baking, holiday food, pasta dinner – whatever you think your group would enjoy
  • You can also refer to our WayForward Shopping List for ideas
