All Ages are Welcome


Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We're excited to welcome you and work together.

The Ark welcomes teens to volunteer in our food pantry. 

You will learn about the programs and services of The Ark and help in our Pantry Warehouse in Lincolnwood to sort and organize essential items for the hundreds of clients who receive pantry orders throughout the month. 


All participants must be vaccinated for COVID-19 to the maximum of their eligibility, and be able to wear a mask over their nose and mouth throughout their time inside at The Ark. 

The Ark can welcome up to 6 individuals per time slot.
