When should I show up to volunteer?
Our volunteers work in two shifts every Saturday. Prep begins at 10am and ends around 12:30pm; serving begins at 1pm and ends around 3:30pm. For more information please check out our Volunteer page.
What should I bring?
Wear comfortable clothing and shoes that you wouldn’t mind getting dirty. Purses, bags, and other valuables are discouraged, but they can be locked in our closet during your shift.
Do I need kitchen experience to volunteer?
Nope! Just bring yourself, an energetic attitude, and we’ll show you the rest.
Can I just show up?
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a Saturday before you or your group visit. We have a small space, and with lots of volunteers we may not be able to fit everyone or ensure that everyone finds a job in our kitchen.
Do you serve special meals on holidays?
We try to serve a special meal for a number of holidays throughout the year. Our holiday meal service is always the Saturday before the holiday, unless the holiday falls on a Saturday.
Do you have an age limit on volunteers?
Our volunteers are 13 and up.
Can I bring donated items such as clothing, food, or supplies?
We love donations! Please send us a message at email@example.com to let us know what you would like to bring and we’ll let you know when someone will be available to receive your gift.
Can I earn community service hours by volunteering?
Yes! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your situation and how many hours you need to complete.
