Individual Volunteer Opportunities

UPDATE (4/2/2020)

We have had a high volume of volunteer sign-ups and are currently working our way through those applications. We will not be taking additional applications until we are fully caught up with those already submitted. The best way to help right now is to donate to our COVID-19 Response Campaign. Thank you so much for your interest in helping us get medically tailored meals to people who are homebound due to severe health conditions.


Thanks for your interest in volunteer opportunities for individuals and families. While we are dealing with the COVID-19 public health crisis, we are waiving many of our normal volunteer requirements, including the usual 6-month commitment. If you are well and eligible to volunteer (please see our COVID-19 policies), then let us know of your areas of interest and availability using our volunteer interest form, linked in the descriptions below. Please be patient with us. We’ll get in touch as quickly as possible; we are currently processing a high number of both volunteer cancellations and new volunteers.
