Every year, thousands of volunteers
make our program a success.

Community Lunch volunteers participate in every aspect of our meals.Volunteer lead cooks prepare our meals and volunteers help to chop ingredients, make sandwiches, greet guests, serve the meal, set up and take down the dining area and kitchen.

All are welcome to volunteer with us, and no special skills are required. Volunteers work with us on a regular basis, once a month, or just for a day.
