Do You Want to Volunteer?

There are lots of ways you can volunteer with us! First you must attend a Volunteer Orientation. Orientations are held on the 4th Saturday of each month, from 11:30 sharp until 12noon. Please let us know in advance if you are coming by emailing joycommunitykitchen@gmail.com.

VOLUNTEER POSITIONS:

Friday, 10-11:30am:
Age 15 and older – Serve clients in the food pantry

Saturday, 10-11:30am:
Age 15 and older – Serve clients in the food pantry

Tuesday, 5-6:30pm:
Age 15 and older – Serve clients in the food pantry

Any day, Any age – Prayer Partners
Our pantry Welcome Form has an optional space for prayer requests. A lot of clients fill them in. We need people to pray for these requests throughout the week. (Requests are always anonymous.)

There are other jobs also available during the week, such as unloading or shelving stock. These needs vary. Would you like to be on a shortlist of people to call when we have unexpected needs? (Example: someone just donated 500 lbs. of food and we need volunteers to sort through and shelve it.) If so, please contact us at joycommunitykitchen.org or joycommunitykitchen@gmail.com.

Finally, we always need people to organize and sponsor canned food drives at their places of play, learning, worship, or business.

    • Hi Vi Dao,

      We offer volunteer orientation the first Saturday of each month at 11:30am. It lasts about a half hour. We are a hybrid food pantry/soup kitchen/delivery service. We don’t currently have a dining room which means all our meals are to-go. Please let me know if you’d like to attend the next orientation. Our email is joycommunitykitchen@gmail.com.

  1. What days and times do y’all do the the soup kitchen? Are volunteers able to assist with giving the to go dinners to the clients?

    • Hi Alexandria,
      Right now our Tues. evening to-go meals are temporarily suspended, for the reason that our host church is having to sell their property meaning that we are searching for a new home. However, our pantry is still running Fri. and Sat. mornings from 10-11:30am, and also Tues. evening from 5-6:30pm. We always need volunteers for those times! We have a 30-minute orientation every Tuesday from 6:30-7pm and also the 4th Saturday of each month from 11:30-12noon. In the meantime, I’ll put your email on our list and we’ll let you know as soon as we’re able to resume our hot meals!
