Children and Families

All Ages are Welcome

Thank you for your interest in volunteering as a family for The Ark. Your act of kindness will directly impact Chicagoland Jews in need.

The Ark welcomes families with children of all ages to volunteer in our food pantry.  


You will learn about the programs and services of The Ark, take a short tour of our facility, and work in the pantry to help prepare items for the hundreds of clients who receive pantry orders throughout the month.

We encourage all families coming to work at The Ark to facilitate a collection effort, and to bring collected items when they come to work in the pantry.

For more information about scheduling, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
