Food Finders Recruiting Volunteers

Food Finders needs about 235 volunteers a week to cover all the positions needed to keep things running smoothly. If you’d like to help low-income families shop for affordable food at the fresh market food bank in Market Square, please sign up at This is a ministry supported by HTLC.



THE  LUM PROTEIN PANTRY  is open at the Ray Ewry Youth Center at 525 N. 4th Street. Open every Thursday from 10-11:30 a.m., this pantry focuses on the three P’s: protein, produce and paper goods.  The pantry is staffed by volunteers and relies on donations of paper goods & select proteins to stock the shelves. The frozen meat products and produce will be purchased and delivered weekly from Food Finders Food Bank.

    Volunteers are urgently needed. People can sign up on-line at, following the link to Volunteer, then to Volunteer Sign Up Sheets or contact LUM @ 423-2691 or emailing

    Donations of paper goods (toilet paper, paper towels, paper napkins, feminine hygiene products and diapers) and shelf-stable proteins (peanut butter, dried beans & lentils, canned tuna, baby formula) are also needed. Storage space is limited, so donations of only those items will be accepted.  Donations can be brought to the LUM Administrative Office every Thursday morning from 9-11:30  420 N 4th Street. As always, your financial contributions are welcome to help with the costs of purchased products. To give on-line, go to or send your gifts to LUM @ 420 N 4th Street.
