FNSP relies on its volunteers to bring a weekly meal to those in need. It is volunteers who give the program its strength and character and who have been instrumental in ensuring the program runs every Friday!
Volunteering provides a meaningful and convenient way for people to give back to the community, and it is a wonderful way to meet and work with people who share your concern for helping others. Volunteering also provides a valuable educational opportunity for individuals and groups who want to learn more about and advocate for food justice and homelessness.

Orientation to the program for first time volunteers is held every Friday before volunteering. All new volunteers, whether coming by themselves or as part of a group are required to attend orientation.

All volunteers must wear closed toe shoes without a heel. Long hair must be tied back and out of the face. Hats must be worn while helping in the kitchen.
