Holiday volunteers needed


Recommended Posts

Just in case anyone is looking for something (charitable AND food-related) to do in the next week or so, I got this in my email today:

Volunteer at Food & Friends during the Holidays!

Make the most of your days off and start a new holiday tradition! Food & Friends will be open throughout the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s, and we hope you will join us in spreading holiday cheer and much-needed nutrition to those living with life-challenging illnesses.

The following is a list of our 2006 Holiday Volunteer Needs:


Gather your friends and family to deliver freshly prepared meals, groceries and friendship to our clients living in DC, MD and VA. There are two shifts to choose from each day: 9:00am; 10:00am (on Christmas Day there will also be an 8am shift).


The kitchen will be as busy as ever as we prepare thousands of meals for our clients. Lend a hand chopping veggies, portioning soup or packing meal bags to ensure that everyone gets fed on time. Two-hour shifts from 9-11am each day. Volunteers must be at least 14 years old to volunteer in the kitchen.

If you wish to volunteer during this time, please register at this link

If that is unsuccessful, you may send an email to Holidays@foodandfriends.org and provide the following information:

1. Name

2. Email Address

3. Daytime/Evening/Cell Phone

4. Mailing Address

5. Volunteer shift for which you wish to volunteer

We will operate on a Holiday schedule on December 25 and January 1, with the kitchen only open from 6am-Noon.

Confirmation emails will be sent prior to your volunteer shift with information on how to get to Food & Friends, where to park and what to expect. Thank you so much for your help!
