No one should ever go hungry, and at Someone Cares Soup Kitchen, our volunteers are the driving force behind our mission and the heartbeat of our organization. By empowering volunteers to take ownership of their service while making a difference in the community, we all thrive! From first-time volunteers to our veterans, we simply could not do what we do without you!

As a volunteer, your service may involve cooking, outside set-up, serving, donations sorting, stocking, cleaning, breaking down boxes, cleaning, and other tasks to make sure our organization runs smoothly, and our guests are served as lovingly as possible. The minimum age to volunteer is 15 years old (No Exceptions).
