At our acclaimed Outdoor Food Distribution located in North Bethesda! Volunteer every Saturday, So What Else provides free food to over 1,500 people in the parking lot in front of our warehouse with the help of our incredible volunteer team.

Volunteers will help direct traffic and should plan to arrive 15 minutes early to allow time for a quick orientation. Volunteers should be able to stand for long periods. Volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes and clothing to move around and get dirty( NO CROCS ALLOWED). This event is entirely outdoors, so please dress accordingly and bring both water and a snack to your shift.

**Only 18 years and older, and you will be standing for a long time and be alone for the majority of the shift**

We encourage you to sign up for any shift, even if you can't stay for the entire time. Simply inform the site lead upon arrival so our team can accommodate your schedule.
