Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What are the times/days for volunteer shifts? Volunteer shifts are Monday-Friday from 9am-12:00pm and 12:30pm-2:30pm. You can sign up to volunteer for a shift here.
  2. What is the dress code for volunteers? For safety reasons, and per health code, all volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes and shirts with sleeves (no tank tops). In addition, all volunteers that work in the kitchen must have their hair covered. You can either bring a hat from home, wear one of the hair nets we provide, or purchase a Kids’ Meals hat for $25 when you arrive.
  3. Can my child come volunteer with me? We believe volunteering should be a family experience. If you have children age 8 or older, they are welcome to come and volunteer with you. While here, children must be supervised by an adult at all times. Only children age 12 or older can prepare food in the kitchen, but we have several other jobs that kids 8-11 can help with.

  5. How many kids are you currently feeding per day? Kids’ Meals is currently feeding 7,000 children per day.
