We are looking for volunteers on Sunday mornings from 5:00 am to 8:00 am for our morning soup kitchen.

Preparing and serving breakfast for people in our community experiencing food insecurity is an awesome, fulfilling way to spend a weekday morning! Interfaith Community Services staff and volunteers can use your helping hands with our morning soup kitchen operated every day of the year. This position is available as a one-time or ongoing service experience.


  • All volunteers under the age of 18 must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all time
