Volunteers will meet at Oppenheimer Park for preparation and distribution. See Upcoming Events for details about the next planned Table Spread event.

Time Commitment:
This volunteer position requires 3-4 hours for lunch bag preparation and an additional 1-2 hours for distribution. Table Spread events will occur once a month on a weekend.

Volunteer Benefits:
You will develop confidence, leadership, responsibility and communication skills through this role. In addition you will develop a sense of appreciation and a broader perspective on life.

Your hours will be documented and references can be provided upon request.
