Volunteer Opportunities

Caring volunteers, dedicated to serving the needs of the hungry in Johnson County and the surrounding areas, are the foundation of Santa Fe Waystation Food Pantry.  A special thanks to the  volunteers who have dedicated many hours, days, weeks, and years of their time to make our  “small yet mighty” pantry a success.
