FAQ

Yes, children are welcome at The Pantry! We ask that children that are still in a stroller not come with their parents as there is not enough room in the warehouse to accommodate a stroller.

Parents need to monitor their children’s emotional well-being. If you determine that a child is getting emotionally weary then please leave with them happy so that they leave with a good feeling about serving.

Children under the age of twelve will need to be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Typically children twelve and older can serve at The Pantry without parental supervision. However, if you as a parent want to serve with your children that is also welcomed by The Pantry.
