Ways for you to help

Our Philosophy

“How we walk with the broken speaks louder than how we sit with the great.”

Volunteer Opportunities

We are lucky to have thousands of volunteers carrying out our mission to help those in need.

We welcome you to serve meals, plate food and bus tables in our Founders Cafe. Our cafe is a clean and safe environment where anyone in need of a meal can find one without judgment. We are dedicated to serving all of our guests with dignity and respect.

We also have group volunteer opportunities at Blanchet Farm such as gardening and facilities maintenance.
