Your best chance to volunteer as an individual is to ask to be added to our “SNL,” the Short Notice List. When we need help, we call through the SNL until we get enough people. All you need to do is say yes or no.
Most of our days at the Soup Kitchen are steadily staffed by volunteers from organizations (churches, businesses or charitable groups) who volunteer on a monthly or semi-monthly basis. Many of these groups have been coming regularly for years. They provide the food, cook and help clean up the kitchen. Not all groups provide all the food; that varies from group to group.
Aside from those “steady” days with set groups, we have only a few days without a scheduled group. That can change, so please call to find out about current openings.
Please NOTE: Volunteers must be at least 12 years old, and volunteers ages 12-17 must have a parent sign a release form before they begin work. Volunteers under the age of 18 are not allowed to operate equipment such as the slicers, knives, etc. These requirements are state law, so there are no exceptions.
Community Service Volunteers
We welcome community service volunteers at the Soup Kitchen. You must speak with the Executive Director to arrange for Community Service. We do not take any offenders with theft or violence issues.
