Serving Groups: We have openings for volunteer groups to cook and serve meals for our guests. Most of our volunteer groups commit to cook and serve once a month (hours 3-6pm). If you would like to help without the monthly commitment, we have spaces available on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month, for individual volunteers. Please contact us and we will be happy to find a time for you to come in and help out.

Lunches: We are always in need of people to make lunches for our guests to take with them. Generally the lunches contain a sandwich, treat or salty snack, fruit and beverage. If you are willing to help us by preparing bag lunches, please contact us.

Work Groups: We occasionally put together groups to help with special projects, such as food drives and spring cleaning. If you are interested in helping out with these events, please contact us.

“We are eternally grateful for the dedication of our corps of volunteers who--mostly without recognition or thanks--collect, prepare, and serve the meals. All you you provide the means for Loaves and Fishes existence.”
