As a volunteer I have enjoyed assisting the guests when they come to shop at the Food Pantry. I've also enjoyed getting to know the other volunteers who show care and compassion for everyone. If you want to volunteer for a nonprofit that appreciates its volunteers and strives to continue to improve services for the less fortunate CAIN is the place.

CAIN goes beyond giving food because of how we treat guests. We work to treat all guests with dignity. It's not just food. It is emotional, spiritual, financial support. I had a guest tell me that she woke up depressed, but she came to CAIN because it made her feel better. We pay attention. We are a community.

As a volunteer at CAIN I have seen the positive impact the Rainbow Choice Food Pantry has on the community of Northside. The Angel Shop at Christmas provided toys and household cleaning items for many families and individuals. The guests could choose the items their children most desired in an organized, well supplied shop. The guests were greeted by pleasant , friendly volunteers. It was a blessed event for all.
