How do I learn more about volunteering?

Volunteers are the driving force of what happens at Greenhouse Ministries.  We have 400 volunteer hours each week and we could not survive without our volunteers!


They assist clients with their needs, teach adult education classes, provide counseling, greet clients at the front desk, clean, sort donations in the warehouse, stock the food pantry and help plan special events.  Whatever your passion, Greenhouse Ministries has a place for you!


Greenhouse Ministries provides volunteer training every second Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. at our main building (309 S. Spring Street, Murfreesboro, TN). You will learn more about who we are and the different services we provide. A tour of our facility will be given at the end of the training.

What is the Mobile Food Pantry?

In short, Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee brings a semi-truck full of food donated by a sponsor to Greenhouse Ministries and we give a week’s worth of food to our clients.


Typically, Mobile Food Pantry is once a month and either falls on a Friday or a Saturday.


At the beginning of the month, we start giving out vouchers for a specific time to receive food. The times typically range from 9 a.m. until 10:30 a.m., depending on the demand.


Mobile Food Pantry is a great volunteer opportunity as well. This event would not be possible without our volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Christy at 615-494-0499.
