Volunteers help out in a variety of ways, both on-site and off-site!
On-site volunteers prepare food in our large kitchen, serve meals for our guests in our dining room, and box up meals that we prepare for to-go meals as well as other agencies that provide shelter. They also keep the dining room tidy and clean, bussing and wiping down tables. On-site shifts are Monday-Friday, 8:00AM-Noon.
Off-site volunteers pick up and deliver donations around the tri-state, hold food drives, and even cook food, bake treats, or assemble sandwiches that they deliver to Our Daily Bread. Cooking or baking are great ways for families with children to help out. Assembling sandwiches has become very popular for businesses, congregations, and other larger groups that want to use teamwork to make a difference. If you are interested in preparing food off-site, you can learn more about our needs and sign up here.
If you are interested in volunteering on-site, please use the form below to contact Kathy Schickel, Director of Operations. Thanks so much for your interest in supporting our work!
Please note: We ask for individuals to make a weekly commitment, choosing one day per week when they have the greatest availability, for a minimum of three months. The minimum age to volunteer is 16 years, and any volunteer under 18 is required to be accompanied by an adult.
