for caring about hungry preschool-aged children. More than 20-60 volunteers daily share their time to prepare meals in our beautiful, centrally located kitchen and YOU can be one of them. Volunteering is a blast! While in our kitchen, volunteers play music, chat, laugh, dance, sing, have sandwich making speed competitions, and have a joyful time while making meals. We host groups of up to 60 (age 8+) from corporations, places of worship, schools, youth groups, sports teams, book clubs and everything in-between.

Volunteer delivery drivers must have a valid driver’s license and insurance. Additionally, they must pass a background check. It is encouraged to have two or more volunteers per vehicle.
