Volunteer Needs
Product Rescue  Flexible, ongoing opportunities
This is the area where we sort and repackage donations, as well as put Homebound boxes and bags for the Backpack Program together. The Product Rescue warehouse, Faith Food Factory, is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 8:00-4:30 and Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00-8:00. Individuals and groups of all sizes are welcome during these times. We ask that volunteers stay at least 2 hours on the weekdays they do come.

Groups of 10-25 people can schedule a shift in Product Rescue on Saturdays. The morning shift is from 8:30-12:00 and the afternoon shift is from 1:00-4:00. It is recommended that you call 2-3 weeks ahead of time to schedule a Saturday.

The age limit for volunteers in Product Rescue is 13 without adult supervision, and 8 with adult supervision. This area is great for team building too!

Masters Table Soup Kitchen must be at least 15 to volunteer
The Master’s Table is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year to serve lunch. Volunteer teams are needed to sponsor days and individuals are needed as fill-ins. Volunteers prepare and serve food for an average of 280 meals a day. The hours are 8:00am – 1:30pm. You may either help for a full shift or come from 8:00-11:00 or 11:00-1:30. (Lunch is served from 11:00-12:30.)

Kids Cafe must be at least 16 to volunteer
Kids Cafe sites provide free prepared food as well as homework assistance to hungry children. Volunteers are needed to help with homework assistance, arts & crafts projects, mentoring, and other activities. Kids Cafe volunteers will need to work out a schedule with the coordinator. Help is also needed in monitoring these sites – training will be provided by Golden Harvest. We have several sites throughout our service area.

Agency Shopping Area – must be at least 18 to volunteer
At our main warehouse, we have a shopping area where our partner agencies come to stock up their food pantries, soup kitchens, and other feeding programs. We need people to help stock, organize, and help at the front desk various days of the week. The shopping area is open 8:00-3:30, Monday through Friday. This is a good opportunity to meet the people who are on the front lines serving the hungry in our area!
