We Depend on You

Are you looking to connect with your community, family, friends, church groups, and coworkers in new ways? Join us at Crosslines as a volunteer! There are many ways to get involved. Crosslines relies on over 500 volunteers each month to roll up their sleeves and help us run the food pantry.


If you have a couple hours, a whole day, or even just want to support us from your office or church, we have an opportunity for you!


We need volunteers to help at the front desk, work in the warehouse, check in clients, shop with clients, carry food out to cars, and help us with other tasks to keep the pantry running. We also need help with our mobile food distribution. We offer volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, church groups, and business groups. We can even set up special events for larger groups, just give us a call.

Tax Credit for Donations

Missouri offers a Food Pantry Tax Credit for any taxpayer who donates cash or food to an in-state food pantry. The credit claimed shall equal 50% of the value of the contribution or donation made. Download and fill out a form here or stop into Crosslines to fill one out.
