SPOTSWOOD, NJ - 'Tis the season for giving and the Alice's CUP Food Pantry is badly in need of volunteers. The food pantry assists any Middlesex County person or family in need. They currently offer assistance to more than 400 families a month.

Alice's CUP is searching for two types of volunteers. First off, a Tuesday evening volunteer is needed to help from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Even one shift a month on a Tuesday evening would be a huge help to the pantry's staff, which is comprised entirely of volunteers.

The other volunteer the food pantry is in need of is inventory personnel.

"We are looking to assemble a team of organized individuals to work together for this weekly volunteer position," Jen Alexander, an Alice's CUP volunteer, explained. "This team would be in charge of maintaining food inventory as it comes into the pantry, restocking our shelves and maintaining communication with the pantry director on supplies. This team would also assist with monthly deliveries from the Community Food Bank of NJ."
