Brighten the holiday season for critically ill neighbors and seniors in need.

It's that time of year! What better way to get in the giving spirit than to volunteer and help prepare, serve or deliver meals with love to our critically ill neighbors and seniors fighting hunger. All shifts will include an orientation and a snack or meal.

Kitchen volunteers at our 730 Polk Street headquarters will slice and dice food and help assemble meal packages for our clients to pick up. Several shifts are available at our 730 Polk Street facility - sign-up to volunteer today:
